Given what I know of Richard I that may not be perfect, but probably isnt terribly far off actually. Edmund can get awfully grumpy about all sorts of things when his mood isnt right.

Fred 1 was still a pretty awesome Emperor.

Richard I also died from hubris: he managed to get all the way out to the Holy Land and back on Crusade and was walking around during some siege or the other, I think back in England, when an archer on the walls spotted him and shot him. Wound infected, dead King.

"What do you mean, I shouldn't be walking around? Nobody can hit me from this distance!"

I'd say Charlemagne but I don't want to die a silly fatass because I wanted to take a bath wearing chainmail and get stuffed in a pickle barrel and carted back home in disgrace. Smooth move, Holy Roman Emperor, smooth.

Or was that someone else? *shrug* I'm a little iffy on the HRE's history.

You are thinking of Barbarossa.

What is Freedom? - ye can tell; That which slavery is, too well; For its very name has grown; To an echo of your own

T'is to work and have such pay; As just keeps life from day to day; In your limbs, as in a cell; For the tyrants' use to dwell

Technically not a ruler, but still.

I... have no idea. Caspius is an ensemble of every negative trait, plus courage, conviction, and zealotry, of several medieval rulers. I can't peg any from my mind off the bat, but I'll look through a list shortly unless someone wants to help out :P.
The adherents of different religions in a realm should compete for power, influence, and fresh converts. They don't even have to be killing each other to do so. I wish people promoted the prosperity of their religions the same way they promoted the growth and prosperity of their realms. - Geronus

Julius Caesar, if he was female, led the Carthagians to victory against Rome, and was a big hulking man riding elephants across the Nile.
The above is accurate 25% of the time, truthful 50% of the time, and facetious 100% of the time.
