    My three favourite rulers are Elizabeth I, Richard III and Vlad the Impaler, but I don't think I'd choose to be any of them.

    Richard III: killed in battle and then humiliated, no thank you.

    Vlad: murdered a lot of people. I feel guilty for stepping on a snail, I don't think I'd be well suited for that.

    Elizabeth: whilst I love and adore her, she was so indecisive and had a lot of plots against her life.

    I don't know, maybe Charles II? He was a lot of fun.

    I agree with you. They were all amazing people! However, I think that Charles II had a really bad childhood- being exiled to France etc. Plus the great fire of London was a disaster :/

    King Henry VIII. His power was the most absolute an English monarch's ever been. He also had more women, wealth and castles than any monarch has any right to. Although, I will say that I'd be a more humane Henry VIII, and I'd likely seek more glory than his poor campaigns in France brought him.

    Trajan or Marcus Aurelius. They weren't kings technically, but imho the best Roman emperors.

    In England, always respected Edward I, and Henry VII. His son and granddaughter relied on his bringing stability to the country.

    Cyrus the Great.

    Alaric.

    Robert the Bruce.
