Llama Longshanks

As Steve-O knows, my primary gripe with Braveheart is that it turns one of England's better Medieval monarchs into a cartoon villain. So perhaps this is appropriate:

King Edward I
You scored 64 Wisdom, 77 Tactics, 53 Guts, and 50 Ruthlessness!
Or rather, King Edward the Longshanks if you've seen Braveheart. You, like Edward, are incredibly smart and shrewd, but you win at any costs.... William Wallace died at his hands after a fierce Scottish rebellion against his reign. Despite his reputation though, Longshanks had the best interests of his people at heart. But God help you if you got on his bad side.

Also Caesar, but I only scored higher than 7 percent for unorthodoxy. Does that make me unusually orthodox?

Er, I was looking at the wrong page when I wrote down my percentages. But I'm still Ceasar, Julius Ceasar.
I wonder if anyone gets to be Spartacus.

Joey, do you like movies about....gladiators?

I was also Ceasar. 57 Wisdom, 84 Tactics, 52 Guts, 50 Ruthlessness.

Ceasar SB Caesar. oops.

Posted by: Brian B at October 20, 2005 03:37 PM

I was Scipio. 59,75,61,48. Looking at the results of the members, looks like this one has a good range. "Vercingetorix"? Heard the name before, but that's about it.

Julias Caesar
I scored 46 Wisdom, 92 Tactics, 37 Guts, and 45 Ruthlessness!

IŽd rather be Manstein! Alas, there was no category for blitzkriegish sneaking on the French through the Ardennes.

Robbo - I am your NEMESIS!

Has anyone scored as a lousy general? Say McClelland, whose best accomplishment was a retreat in good order?

Posted by: miriam at October 21, 2005 09:45 AM

Yet another Caesar here (was this the default, or is this just the popular choice?): 59 Wisdom, 69 Tactics, 55 Guts, and 55 Ruthlessness...

Vercingetorix was a Celtic (Arverni) chieftan who led an army against the Romans.

Posted by: Brian B at October 21, 2005 11:29 AM

Yeah, Miriam, but I'm assured he was a good tactician... who got drummed out later on. It had something to do with "sprouting balls." Which would be a problem for me, without surgical aid, so, there you go.

Naw, McClellan was a miserable field commander. His strategic notion of striking up the Peninsula to crush the Confederacy in Richmond was sound enough, but he was so concerned about preserving his political ambitions that he wouldn't dare commit his troops in a manner to ensure the job got done.

Give him credit for organization and administration - the troops loved him for it - but keep him away from battles, is my advice.

Posted by: Robbo the LB at October 21, 2005 02:45 PM

Er, thanks Rob. I balance it out with my better half, King Faad, who apparently drinks the blood of children for breakfast.

Edward Longshanks,38,98,13,92. I never realized how much of a bastard I am.

William Wallace
You scored 74 Wisdom, 62 Tactics, 62 Guts, and 61 Ruthlessness!
