    Wow, she looks a lot prettier than I expected.

    Does this mean that Monarchs change the same way they did in history? Doesn't seem like there's a family tree, but surely that would be relevant?

    In my Prussian game, Austria also had a female leader, and Maratha starts out with one.

    But this... can't be coincidental..

    I have noticed a hell of a lot of bugs in those monarchy/heads of state tabs. Female leaders are also referred to as he or him a lot, instead of her or she.

    Still, it's no gamebreaker.

    Actually, they are simple image files, and are therefore made of pixels.

    I commented on this yesterday when I saw Victoria succeed William in 1720 in an AAR thread at .net - http://www.twcenter.net/forums/showt...=231532&page=5

    As I said over there -
    Victoria! In 1720?
    She wasn't even born until 1819 and came to the throne in 1837. What happened to Anne and all the Georges?
    I'm really surprised that CA didn't just use the historical timeline

    1689-1702 William III (and Mary 1689-1694)
    1702-1714 Anne
    1714-1727 George I
    1727-1760 George II
    1760-1820 George III
    1820-1830 George IV
    1830-1837 William IV
    1837-1901 Victoria

    http://www.royal.gov.uk/Historyofthe.../Victoria.aspx
    Great AAR by the way, thanks for taking the trouble

    But really, the Victorian era starting in 1720....bah...mutter...mutter...
    The only comments so far have been to dismiss it as "Oh well, anything can happen in ETW" and "It isn't the same Victoria"

    Seriously, what was wrong with just using a simple list of (historical) Monarch names? And have the right portrait too for that matter? I know TW are 'what if' games but using random or out of sequence monarchs is, well, pointless and just wrong.

    It's hardly as if the names, ages and appearences of the monarchs are set in stone. If you want to see historical re-enactment, read a book.

    I think the irony is that about 10 years earlier I got a message that William just had a son called george...

    Fraps.

    I think printscreen is the "official" way to take them, but it doesn't work all the time.

    I'm sure she also finds tigers in uniforms to be charming.

    Kind of like those people who dress up their dogs.

    Generally speaking, I like the random monarchs... it wouldn't be fun otherwise. Also, the fact that you get historical figures as generals is particularly awesome.
