I'd love that too! Isabella was a real character and certainly lived an eventful life.

I'd really like a film on Marguerite of Navare. In fact, I'd love a film on either ladies known under the name (one was Francis I's sister, the other - Henry II's daughter, sister to Francis II, Charles IX and Henry III, and wife to Henry IV). I know the latter lady has been popularised in Dumas work but I think I would prefer something more factual and involving a larger segment of her life.

I would like to see a very tasteful movie about Their Majesties George V & Queen Mary. I also hope a tasteful movie will be done on Elizabeth II life at some point in the future, perhaps after she passed on.

Most of the movies that I've seen about royals have primarily been the British Royal Family. It would be interesting if a series of movies were done on other royal households. A series called the Royal Households of the World which would feature various royal households or their history. It would be interesting to me, at least. Can't say that this would be the same for the American public in general.

I feel like The Queen did a pretty fantastic job with parts of her life already.

I think that a movie about Britain's Queen Mary told from her point of view would be interesting. She had a fascinating, though sorrowful, life.

Queen Mary's life would take a mini-series. She when from her husband's grandmother was queen to her grand daughter being queen. Oh, and an abdication.

Queen Margaret of Scotland. Her father was exiled from Britain and she was raised in Hungary, with her mother being a daughter of the "Holy Roman Emperor." Her family tried to return to England but they were forced away, and sailed on a ship which winds blew to Scotland, where she met the King, Malcolm (this was just after the time of MacBeth, Shakespeare's scoundrel). Margaret introduced customs of the European church to Scotland and was declared a saint of the Catholic Church. She had six sons, and died a few weeks after her husband Malcolm was killed in battle. Her son became King David I of Scotland, who invited the family which became the Stuart kings to settle in Scotland, after they fought on the wrong side of a dynastic battle in England.
This would be about as murderous and swashbuckling as any Tudor drama from a later period.

I would love to see a film about Richard III of England. I know that there are many versions of Shakespeare's Richard III, but that play is very much anti-Richard and I would like something less biased or even pro-Richard filmed, for example "The Sunne in Splendour" by Sharon Kay Penman, especially now when archeologists might have found the remains of Richard.

I think Haakon and Mette-Marit's story is so interesting and lovely. I'd totally go see a film about their love story.

For Queen Victoria we have The Young Victoria (I really liked it, but it was about Victoria's childhood until Coronation, so a sequel needs to be made about her life as Queen).

I would definately want a Queen Willhelmina live adaptation, her history fascinates me, all the process about how she became Queen, her marriage life, her dificulties with pregnancy, her hardships through the World Wars and her love and strong duty for her country. Lots happened to her on her lifetime.

There's Victoria the Great and Sixty Glorious Years, where Victoria is portrayed by Anna Neagle, Mrs. Brown, where she's played by Judi Dench.

And "Victoria and Albert" where the main protagonists are played by Victoria Hamilton and Jonathan Firth (brother of Colin Firth)

I saw the film and it was lovely!
