    Teddy Roosevelt = 22+1=23 - Teddy Roosevelt is one of the best designed leaders in this list. He deserves an upvote.
    Saladin = 21
    John Curtin = 8
    Qin Shi Huang = 9-3=6 - In fact, he sometimes looks like an angry hamster. And that's not good. Him speaking accurate Chinese won't save him from being the worst designed leader here.
    Cleopatra = 19
    Victoria = 18
    Catherine de Medici = 9
    Frederick Barbarossa = 16
    Gorgo = 17
    Pericles = 21
    Hojo Tokimune = 23
    Mvemba a Nzinga =14
    Harald Hadrada = 20
    Cyrus the Great = 24
    Jadwiga = 19
    Trajan = 20
    Tomyris = 22
    Peter the Great = 20
    Phillip II = 15
    Gilgamesh = 18

    My two favorites in appearance are Cleopatra and Cyrus, and Cyrus currently has the lead...

    Pericles is much blander than Gorgo

    Gilgamesh is over the top and doesn't look Sumerian in any way, nor does his background.
    I like Saladin, he is one of the best in my opinion. His gesticulations are really awesome.

    Mvemba looks to me like a local tribal leader, not a king presiding over a rich and fertile land. Missed opportunity for portraying a really powerful African monarch.

    And while Philip is definitely portrayed as someone else than his historical self, his animations and emotional reactions are amazingly done. Always puts a smile on my face.

    Qin looked too cartoonish.
    Cyrus looked so villanous.

    Saladin = 22
    John Curtin = 8 + 1 = 9 Relatively accurate (he even wore that hat in real life), and his lines and voice acting are just solid. Some of the lines don't draw directly from what he said in real life, but are so close in language and style to what one expects of the World War II leader that it's quite fitting. I like his distinguished nose, too--one of the rare few physical portrayals of a leader (alongside Cyrus) that Firaxis got right.
    Qin Shi Huang = 3
    Cleopatra = 20
    Victoria = 18
    Catherine de Medici = 6
    Frederick Barbarossa = 16 - 3 = 13 Inaccurate armor, somewhat stiff animation, and as a previous poster (in a different thread) pointed out, he looks like a Playmobil knight. His background is a muddled morass of messy snow that neither inspires nor reminds of Germany in any way, shape or form.

    John Curtin = 10 (9+1)
    A little weird that he's a Ed Beach cameo (seriously, he looks more like Ed than John Curtin!) but I like him all the same. Nice attire, offers a leader from a different period of history, and helped me learn about an interesting character that I knew nothing about.

    Cleopatra = 20
    Victoria = 18

    Catherine de Medici = 4 (7-3)
    de Medici is awful. I agree that they did fairly well with a poor choice, but she's still a poor choice. Not French? Check. Not synergistic with her civ? Check. Not a good ruler? Check. Agenda doesn't make any sense either. How am I supposed to use spies before they become unlocked? The agendas should have constraints that prevent them from proc-ing from non-applicable situations, such as Harald for landlocked countries.

    Frederick Barbarossa = 13
    Gorgo = 17

    Hojo Tokimune = 23
    Mvemba a Nzinga = 8

    Tomyris = 22
    Phillip II = 16

    EDIT: I got sniped into upvoting a dead leader. Going back to correct.
