* King Canute once ordered the sea to pull back, but then got splashed by the tide still coming in. This is about all present day people remember about him. They even forget that afterwards Canute actually acknowledged God was more powerful than him and that his famous anecdote wasn't just a proof of how moronic this king supposedly was for trying to command the tide.

* [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nKH_SxODIjg The song "Here Comes Peter Cottontail"]] which is commonly played during the spring and Easter seasons actually came from the lesson known Rankin Bass holiday special WesternAnimation/HereComesPeterCottontail which shares the name of the song. However since the special is not well-known to the public. Most people would think and even believe that the song is actually about Peter Rabbit from Literature/TheTaleOfPeterRabbit which doesn't help that Peter Rabbit also has a sister named Cottontail. As a result most Americans would think that "Peter Cottontail" was [[IAmNotShazam Peter Rabbit's full name]] and the title of the book.

* UsefulNotes/CleopatraVII: Many people imagine her as Creator/ElizabethTaylor in ''Film/{{Cleopatra}}'' (1963) which while unusually accurate to the historical record, was far more glamarous, fitting to 20th century beauty standards, since obviously no record survives of the ancient world. At the very least she was certainly not TheWorldsMostBeautifulWoman as the film most definitely implies.
