    Personally I would like to see them go with Franco. Doubt we will ever see that happen though. Firaxis always goes with the PC choices. :p

    Got to love Stalin in Civ IV, though, or Mao Zedong.

    Charles I or Phillip II I would presume? I like Isabella. She was undeniably a powerful female ruler that had full claim to her throne and accomplished a lot. She also held power over her Kingdom even after her marriage. Ferdinand was never accepted as King, the people still revered and followed their Queen. She also strongly embodies the religious and colonial policies that her successors followed. There's always a push for at least some gender inclusion. The removal of Cleopatra and Hatsheput meant Wu in this game. For the expansion, it isn't unreasonable to add Isabella, who is a competent choice (I'd argue Boudica as well, although she isn't quite as great a choice).

    EDIT: While Franco is an interesting choice, my complaints are about controversies. He didn't rule at the height of Spanish power (or anything close to it, really). I also don't think he dramatically advanced the country in other ways either and doesn't hold sway in popular imagery in Spain as an embodying leader of greatness. I think those criteria with a caveat that gender inclusion is a concern pretty much explains every leader they have and does quite a lot to explain the ones they do not.
