Henry V

Henry V must have been an astoundingly intelligent man. He was a bold military officer in his teens, an accomplished martial strategist, and kept a firm, informed hand on the fiscal state of his kingdom; all while maintaining loyal relationships with his brothers.

A good read: Agincourt by Juliet Barker.

The Elizabeths. Both queens treated/treat the office as it should be treated.

Victoria: never waivered, full steam ahead, skilled diplomat, and an adored granny.

True, but he made such a foolish marriage! Must take away points for that.

Oh, please tell me more info- why was Catherine of Valois so bad? If not for her there would have been no Henry VIII and no Elizabeth I yes?

My thoughts and story, exactly. When she died, the BRF lost a shining star and me as an admirer. If it wasn't William getting married, I wouldn't even be here. LOL.

2. Prince Albert- what a wonderful man! Have you seen Edward the King? Isn't Robert Hardy( my favorite actor ever wonderful as Prince Albert?
3. Victoria- Fascinating complex lady!

But she brought a strain of insanity into the RF, (Henry VI ), which they didn't breed out for years!

Plus, she took up with Owen Tudor and brought about the Tudor line (let's face it, Henry VIII wasn't exactly an ideal king).

As for Elizabeth I, she was a magnificent queen but even Henry wondered if she was legitimate.

Elizabeth I looks just like her father....lol there is no historical evidence to prove otherwise- he doubted that as a way to remarry and get a male heir.....too funny

It's difficult to choose,but....as a little time ago I watched "The Tudors" ,I've been kind of "obsessed " with them lately.They have so much history and they are very interesting,though I am very fascinated as well by Mary,Queen of Scots,Charles II period(it will be great to have series as well),XVIII century period and Queen Victoria of course.

For me:

Current - Charles and Camilla - so together they almost seem as one; Elizabeth and Philip as well - just so dedicated

Past - Edward VII and Alexandra - so right for their times and Alexandra was the perfect Princess of Wales - none before or since have come close to her perfection in that role

I would say Lord(Earl) Louis Mountbatten. The things I've read about him seem interesting. Elizabeth and Philip were lucky he and his wife were around to accompany Charles and Anne to Malta to join them. Maybe that is why he was Charles' favorite great uncle: he was always around to lend a hand when needed? It seems he and his wife had a happy marriage and life with their two daughters. It's too bad he died the way he did, but he was very opinionated and stood his ground in conversations with his relatives. The people who had a hand in his demise probably picked him for that very reason. Unfortunate. As far as his immediate family, one sister wound up a Queen of Sweden, and his other sister's son wound up marrying the heiress presumptive to the British throne. Not bad!
