Wow, even with the really off the wall answers, I got Eliz I. Nothing to be sneezed at but I thought I'd get someone a little more unconventional. Ah well, like my first pick better!

I got Mbande Nzinga also. Not terribly high in ruling power, alas - 49% I think.

Ditto! And it's kind of ironic since I've just read a book on her and Diane de Poitiers not that long ago.

Interest in HF: started in childhood with the classics, which, IMHO are HF even if they were contemporary when written.
Favourite HF book: Prince of Foxes, by Samuel Shellabarger
Preferred HF: Currently prefer 1600 and earlier, but I'll read anything that keeps me turning the page.

Now I was trying to 'game the system' and get Elizabeth I, but I got the African Queen instead. Wonder how they arrived at that?
