Saint Patrick, reformed Brit
All but Dissertations has an interesting link about the greatest Brits of all time. Despite my bardolatry, I have to go with St. Patrick, who was born in Britain, and who converted the Irish to Christianity without bloodshed, leading to the development of the Irish monasteries that saved civilization, as written by Thomas Cahill's book How the Irish Saved Civilization.

Besides, what is great art (Shakespeare) or great military leaders (Churchill) compared to the loss or gain of one's immortal soul?
