Not all of these women were Rulers in their own right or won major battles, or even greatly in influenced politics; however all of these women made an inpact.

Very cool but you put Maria I as a Queen of Spain. She was Queen Regnant of Portugal. Spain never even had a regnant Queen Mary

Thank you!
But it's Queen Mary I of England who was briefly Queen Consort of Spain that I am pointing out, sorry for the confusion.

Weren't they first cousins? It's an interesting married. Calais was finally given back to France, and really the only good thing that came out of that married.

Oh, it's just that as you had already pointed out Mary I in the Queens of England, I thought that you had confused her as Queen of Spain.
And you're welcome

Hey, you forgot Queen Margrete I, whom united Denmark, Norway and Sweden into Kalmarunion! Yeah, I konw that it's hard to remeber all queens...
But why Alexandra Feodorovna? The only thing, she did, was her relationship with Rasputin, whom was the fate of the Russian Empire.

Forgot to add that Poland had another famous queen crowned in 16 October 1384 and that was Jadwiga of Poland, she is venerated by the Roman Catholic Church as Saint Hedwig, where she is the patron saint of queens and a United Europe. ;)
LadyNorrington19 Featured By Owner Mar 30, 2010
OMG, I utterly forgot about Jadwiga! But of course she called herself "King" not Queen ;)
VanityDelacroix Featured By Owner Mar 31, 2010  Hobbyist
Ah that because at that time in history and politics a Queen could not rule a country so they made her King ;)

Very nice, btw. the Polish queen was actually named ANNA JAGIELLON.

Major kudos!!! I love it!

This is great. I'm so glad there is some attention on other queens for once. Usually people focus solely on Henry VIII's six wives, Eleanor of Aquitaine, Marie Antoinette, Mary Stuart, Bloody Mary, Elizabeth I, and Josephine. I really like that you included Marguerite d'Anjou. XD
