I'd be very surprised if I was the only one who felt the portrayal of some leaders was a little off; If you found something odd about certain people in the game I'd be interested in hearing about it. I'll kick off with the one I found most jarring: Frederick II of Prussia fought a series of costly wars against vastly greater powers and was renowned for his military prowess (Napoleon for one considered him one the greatest tacticians in history... and he remains somewhat controversial in Germany because of his perceived warmongering). I have no issue with the traits - he was a man of diverse interests and any selection would be arbitary. However, In Civ4, he's far too peaceful in my opinion. He builds a neglegible army, he's one out of 3 leaders whose demands you can refuse with impunity(Hatshepsut and Gandhi being the others) and I don't understand where the Base Peace Weight of 8 comes from. At the same time, he was very tolerant as far as religion is concerned and I'm suprised this wasn't incorporated.
