Best Monarchs of All Times
The Top Ten
Frederick THE GREAT. He was abused by his father, was never let use of musical instruments and books, and yet when his reign arrived, he led Prussia through the Seven Years' War and greatly expanded Prussia's army and land. Deserving of his title, without doubt.
This one Prussian did so much for his kingdom. He was a patron of the arts and a great composer. Of course, even greater are his military exploits. The greatest German leader.
Father of modern warfare
Gustav II is the most powerful king northern europe has ever seen.
He founded the swedish empire.
i'm proud to be swedish.
Take that, danes
The guy who demanded a higher ransom be requested for him when kidnapped.
Drove the English out of France which signalled the end of the great Angevin Empire and defeated a coalition of his enemies at the Battle of Bouvines. Also went off on crusade, curbed the power of the nobility, modified the justice system and modernised Paris. A monarch who is often unfairly forgotten.
Alexander III ruled Scotland from 1249-1286 and in 1266 after defeating the Norwegians at the Battle of Largs gained the Hebrides and the counties of Caithness and Ross for Scotland.
Drove out the invading Spanish and restored confidence in the monarchy after the French Wars of Religion.
Greatly expanded the empire to its furthest since Justinian whilst also managing to keep the treasury full.
He not only created the largest empire the world had ever seen, he managed to respect all the different cultures and beliefs found within his realm.
By far the best...expanded the empire to its zenith, added a law system that would last until the end of the Ottoman Empire in the 20th century...it was a golden age.
Would of become king of France, simply through guts, determination and some great commanders, had he not died so early. Lead the English at the battle of Agincourt, one of/if not the greatest victory in the country's history. My favourite king and English monarch. My favourite queen and monarch of any other nation is Isabella of Castile.
