    This is a genius guess but regrettably not the solution. Still, it's an amazing use of the clues so far. :goodjob:

    I kinda wish I'd picked Mech Infantry now, as it's definitely nothing to eff with. However, the answer isn't a what, but rather a who. My eventual third clue will be a song about who's actual name, but I'm hoping someone figures me out now :).

    This is the closest guess, and the one I've been expecting. And it's very close, of course. Wu Zetian started as a royal concubine and then eventually pulled off a stunning coup to take power. But I couldn't give a second clue with her name in the title :).

    And kudos to someone with the imagination to imagine 6-foot-tall George Washington as a cocktail waitress :D

    Hurray, we have a winner. My third clue would have been the Duran Duran Song (Rio). I enjoyed this, thanks guys.

    It's the Empress Theodora.

    The first clue is super descriptive: "You were working as a waitress at a cocktail bar, when I met you."

    According to the sources, Theodora started at a young age as an actress in a Byzantine brothel/theater and utilized her cunning and her performances to cast a spell over important people coming to see her. I believe she initially was taken away from her origins by a provincial governor who was enchanted with her, before she eventually returned to the capital and caught the eye of Justinian, the Emperor.

    The second clue relates to her steely composure and role in the Nikka riots of 532. "Wu Tang Clan ain't nothing to f... with."

    Because of corruption and rising taxes, the opponents of Justinian eventually rose up and there were full scale riots and civil unrest in the Capital. Many royals, including the Emperor himself, wanted to flee the city (possibly never to regain power), as they were afraid of being murdered by the mob.

    Theodora supposedly made an impassioned speech that changed the course of Byzantine history. Not only did she convince the power base to stay, she inspired/instructed them to invite the political assembly of the two populist factions to a hearing where they could discuss power-sharing options. So 30,000 "Greens" and "Blues" came from the two populist groups into the Hippodrome.

    Theodora had the military stationed nearby and they surrounded the hippodrome before storming in and killing all 30,000. It's theorized that one reason the Blues and Greens attended was they thought the Emperor weak and his wife a simple whore. They chose poorly.

    They had a beef, they wanted a ruckus, but Theodora... was not one to f--- with.

    Portugal?

    That's the only connection that my very limited imagination is able to find between those 4 countries. If this is another movie/song clue, please say so.

    They're the modern day countries that contain game natural wonders that are Mounts.

    I'll give it to Gori.
    The answer is Mountain, but "Mounts" is too close to ignore. The clue basically states the four modern day countries with a natural wonder that starts with "Mount" in the game.
    China - Mt Kailash
    Egypt - Mt Sinai
    Japan - Mt Fuji
    Tanzania - Mt Kilimanjaro
