I am Catherine de Medici!

Funny, I don't remember answering those questions like a woman with a Masters degree in political scheming!

Yippee! I am my favorite queen!

You are: Eleanor of Aquitaine, Queen of England and of France, 1122-1202. Eleanor was one of the most influential figures of the 12th century. Married at age fifteen to Louis VII of France, she later divorced him to marry Henry II, the future King of England. She bore Henry eight children, two of them future kings of England. Throughout her life she maintained control over her extensive lands in Southern France, and cleverly managed the lives of her children and grandchildren


Now Im going to return to the quiz and pick the most fun answers....

You are: Hatshepsut, Queen of Egypt, 15th century B.C. Hatshepsut was a powerful political person in Egypt even before she assumed the title of Pharaoh. She had a peaceful reign promoting trade and the arts. Her beautiful temple at Deir el-Bahri still stands west of Thebes.

You scored 67% on ruling power, higher than 79% of your peers.


Fun quiz!
