4 Marie Antoinette (France)  Marie Antoinette (France)

She hardly did anything but throw lavish parties. She was so out of touch with her people. This is where we get the saying, 'let them eat cake.' Because that is what she said when she was told her 'people have no bread.' If that's not an airheaded, ignorant response, I don't know what is.

Yes, she didn't have any experience of ruling. I put her on the list for her beauty and sweet personality. In the end, she was executed for her inexperience of ruling but it was kind of tragic. But I understand what you mean though. - ivylee
