    Why the heck did Queen Catherine of Aragon only get an honorable mention? She did more than Anne ever did. Not only that, she taught Henry how to rule and govern as a king, as well being a daughter of two insanely powerful parents, King Ferdinand and Queen Isabella of Castille of Spain.

    This documentary proved interesting and exciting! I did not know that Queen Maria Theresa of Austria was the mother of Marie-Antoinette. It gives an in depth outline as to why these women proved to be the Queens that they were during their time on this earth.

    This list should be named the most famous Queens from the point of view of the average Briton. How about Catherine de Medicis, Margaret of Valois or Empress Elisabeth of Austria ? Ann Boleyn is hardly one of the most famous worldwide although TV and films have popularized her recently, and mentioning her in this list is preposterous. It's also silly to say that "little is known about Marie Antoinette's true character" seeing as she's probably one of the most documented royal ever.

    When you say "10 most famous", the question is famous where and to whom. As you would expect from an American/British video, it includes mostly British queens, with some "backup actresses" from Russia and Western Europe and an exotic falvour from Egypt. But with all due respect to Catalina de Aragon, who was Henry VIII's wife and this is why whe is mentioned, along with her rival Anne Boleyn, where is Isabella of Spain? The most influencial queen of her time? The queen who united Spain and began the era of the most powerful country of its time? The queen who invented the concept of modern state, who financed the Colombus missions and, together with Ferdinand of Aragon, completed the Reconquista and, also, expelled the Jews (yes, people can be famous also for negative actions which affected the whole continent). Not even mentioning her under honorable mentions, while other less influential queens (Europe-wise and globally) are in the main list, says a lot about this video's intentions.
