Queen Zenobia of Palmyra (to me, Zenobia was the female conqueror, I know that some people are very passionate about Cleopatra bearing that very title, but the truth is that Cleopatra knew that it was too unrealistic for Egypt to defeat Rome, and therefore she worked within Rome's power structure - thereby giving advance to herself, her family and her people - however smart that is (and it really is), it doesn't make her a conqueror (nor very much of a warrior Queen). Zenobia, on the other hand, was out in the field conquering her butt off, so to speak ).

Empress Matilda, Lady of the English (the first Queen of England. I love her story, she's a great female role model and I admire that she never stopped for her (and her son's) right to the throne).

Alexandra of Denmark and Maria Feodorovna (shoving these two together in one category because they were my first real royal interest. I own god knows how many books about Alix and Minnie and I never get tired of reading them. Both sisters have very interesting stories and particularly Alexandra was a very admirable woman).

Queen Elizabeth II (there's really no need for an explanation here, is there? Just the fact that I call her HM even though she technically isn't my Queen (sorry Daisy, I still love you very much ) says a lot about my admiration for her, and that certainly is an admiration well earned).

Honourable mentions: Queen Artemisia I of Caria; King Henry IV of France; King Christian IX of Denmark; King Christian X of Denmark; Princess Marina of Greece and Denmark, the Duchess of Kent; Grand Duchess Olga Nicholaievna Romanova; Queen Ingrid of Denmark; Prince Bertil of Sweden, the Duke of Halland; Prince Philip, the Duke of Edinburgh; Queen Margrethe II of Denmark; Prince Charles, the Prince of Wales; Princess Anne, the Princess Royal; Crown Princess Mary of Denmark.

One of my favorites is definitely Crown Princess Victoria! She is smart, honest, hardworking, and an overall good person. Someone even described her as "the best human being in the world".

She seems so GENUINE in a sometimes (a lot LOL) superficial "royal world."

The duke and duchess of Cambridge Kate Middleton and Prince William. They are just so down to earth people and don't even think of themselves as royalty.

My favourite royals are: Crown Princess Victoria, Prince Harry, Queen Mathilde and King Philippe... as well as King Felipe and Queen Letizia for ther work ethic. Crown Princess Victoria is the epitome of what a future and modern queen should be IMO: caring, down to earth, hardworking. Same goes for the other choices. I think that Queen Mathilde has played a huge infleunce to the success of King Philippe, making the couple quite popular. Prince Harry comes across a an easygoing guy, doing what he is expected to do (in terms of royal duties), without much complaining. And when he is in the wrong, he apologize, no matter what.

King Philippe and Queen Mathilde of course. I agree with Marty Mathilde is the true asset of Belgium.
Queen Maxima for the same reason and always Queen Elizabeth.

My favorite Royal is King Carl XIV Johan of Sweden. He worked up his way to be Marshal of the French Imperial Army. He was selected as a Crown Prince. He founded a royal dynasty.
