Joseph Smith
Joseph Smith was an American religious leader, and the founder of the Mormon religion and of the Latter Day Saints. He published the Book of Mormon at the age of 24, which Smith said he had found, written in ancient Egyptian, left on a hillside by an angel. He is also known for his practice of polygamy, marrying at least 50 women - many of them already wives of his followers, sisters, or even mothers and daughters, and being as young as 14.
