Just for that alone I'm voting for Turkey! I wouldn't be surprised to see the Inca, Maori, or Mali (Mansa Musa probably had a lot of silver too) at this point either. Eleanor does sound like a fascinating person and having a leader lead 2 Civs could be very interesting but I feel the same at this point until I see more. I actually wouldn't mind having Eleanor as the alt leader at all IF England already had Elizabeth I / Alfred the Great and France already had Louis XIV / Phillip II but with the current selections it would be like you said with having another dubious choice on top of more dubious choices. She would make a great choice for a new governor too but I guess we'll just have to wait and see what happens.
