    Battle: I would have to say that my absolute favorite battle would have to be... Battle of Belgrade, simply because I am happy that the Turks got what they deserved.
    General: Eugen von Savoyen, for his ability to make inadequate systems work.
    Leader: Toughie... I'd say Hannibal.
    Emperor: Without a doubt Constantine, smart man, strong emperor, made a good move by moving the Roman capital to Byzantium.

    Frederick the Great - the Battle of Leuthen

    20,000 Prussians vs 60,000 Austrians. The Austrans camped hard with superior numbers, but Frederick attacked their flank and won.

    Leader: Alexios Komnenos - My ancestor! And one of the greatest statesmen/politicians of history
    Emperor: Alexios Komnenos
    Warrior: Richard the Lionheart - The warrior king that Saladin himself declared could not be defeated in battle.
    Captain: Harald Hardrada of Norway - Fought as a captain in the Varangian Guard of Basil II, and fought the Turks with great will and courage.
    King: Baldwin I of Jerusalem - He was a terrible and cruel man, but he was the greatest king of his time.
    Queen: Elizabeth I of England - Easy choice. Built up the national confidence to defeat the Spaniard at Gravelines.
