1. real
2. male
3. non-english native language
4. unknown to wikipedia for him speaking a second (or more) language(s)
5. dead

Hmm ... thinking about point 4, that doesn't mean he couldn't have spoken more languages, just it isn't included on his wikipedia ... maybe because it isn't relevant, maybe for that type of guy it's normal to speak different languages? (that isn't a question for the game master btw, just an open thought towards the players, so don't count it)

I kinda feel we deal with someone from an ancient past here, but I shouldn't let my hunches dictate my guesses, though I believe the question below will help us here. Well maybe I'm wrong, but in that case ~500 years is a good area to work with (I already changed it from my initially guess of 400 AD/CE).

Was the date of birth of this person before the 1st of January 1500 AD/CE (in the Gregorian calendar)?

No. Sorry to dash your hopes, but he’s not ancient.

Was he from a country that was one of the founding members of the League of Nations (in 1920?)

I’ll take “country” liberally and say yes.

Was this man an entertainer (including actor, music man, poet, comedian, painter, sculptor, magician, circus performer, competitive eating champion, or writer of fiction) ?

Although he could conceivably fit some of those descriptions depending on interpretation, I would not call him an entertainer.
