Krišjānis Barons

Krišjānis Barons in 1910 Krišjānis Barons (October 31, 1835 – March 8, 1923) was a Latvian writer who is known as the "father of the dainas" () thanks largely to his systematization of the Latvian folk songs and his labour in preparing their texts for publication in ''Latvju dainas''. His portrait appeared on the 100-lat banknote prior to the Lat being replaced by the Euro in 2014, his being the only human face of an actual person on modern Latvian currency. Barons was very prominent among the Young Latvians, and also an important writer and editor. Provided by Wikipedia
