Okay, I have thought long and hard on this question...... it's something new, and my first reaction was "Well, Simon represented Christ, so where does Piggy fit in? I couldn't come up with ANYTHING. So after thinking about this for quite awhile, the older, famous person, I can come up with who shared some of Piggy's charateristics was William McKinley.

McKinley was brilliant, well educated, and he generally supported the public over those with private interests. He was also teased and humilated, caricatured by newspapers, and eventually assassinated by an anarchist. This is the closest I can get to a real life figure for you. Hope it helps!
