    Figured it's better to do this as a poll, rather than an elimination thread, so here we go: a poll on which leaders' hats you like most!

    I based the names off of my list in this thread, and since I could only put 30 entries into a poll, I had to cut out the following entries I otherwise would've kept in:

    Matthias's Corona Triumphalis
    Magnificence Catherine's Metal Net Thingie
    Jadwiga's Crown
    Amanitore's Crown
    French Eleanor's Crown
    Cyrus's Diadem
    Saladin's Turban
    Hammurabi's Crown
    Robert the Bruce's Crown
    Barbarossa's Crown
    Tamar's Crown
    Lautaro's Headband

    Feel free to vote on these anyways in the comments, I'll keep a tally here in the OP of all the votes these ones get too so they don't get left out.

    Also, here's some headwear(?) that I was pretty sure wouldn't count, in case people want to vote for these too:

    Dido's Headband
    Gandhi's Glasses
    Kupe's Hair Tie - 1
    Poundmaker's Hair Holder
    Bull Moose Teddy's Glasses
    Wilfrid Laurier's Pince-Nez

    Suleiman is the objectively correct choice here. Go big or go home.

    Honorable mention to Montezuma's use of leaves to simulate the effect. Fake it 'til you make it.

    The correct answer is Menelik's, and anyone who disagrees is wrong and should either block me or like this comment.

    Rule of thumb: the less impressive the leader looks without their headwear, the more work the headwear was doing

    Cleopatra's Helmet Thingie
    Seondeok's Crown (Crown of Silla)

    While will not argue with any else profound logic, those are the only two I can picture in my mind.

    Qin's crown. How does he even wear that thing? And he's certainly not impressive without it...:king:

    I like Monty's .. whatever you call it. I had to sneak in a vote for John Curtin's simple fedora too.

    This. It's a fedora.

    I gotta vote for Teddy's 5 year old halloween/male stripper cowboy hat though.

    Thinking about @kryat's rule of thumb, and had a thought:

    Pericles without his helmet... :shifty:

    Still probably not as bad as Chandragupta without his, though.

    Now this is the kind of content I signed up for! I would certainly be up for a hat elimination thread.

    I would say that Harald has my favorite hat, because it serves all the purposes he needs. You can tell from the position of Harald's hat how he is feeling, it's simple. Hat off, you get to live, for now. But when his hat is on, he means business. His hat communicates everything you need to know about an angry Viking.

    I've decided I'm throwing down a vote for Kupe's Hair Tie. @kryat's rule of thumb is a good one, and honestly that hair tie is doing a lot for Kupe - not that he would look bad without it! - just that he looks great with his hair tied up.

    And with that, here's the current standings for the top three placements

    1st place, 10 points
    English Eleanor's Rose Wreath
    2nd place, 9 points
    Seondeok's Crown
    3rd place, 8 points
    Tied - Lady Six Sky's Headdress & Rough Rider Teddy's Cowboy Hat

    If this thread gets some more traction I'll ask about making it an elimination thread, especially since we haven't had one in a while (unless a new one gets posted as I'm typing this). Feel free to discuss with each other what we think of each headwear, why some should be placed higher or lower, etc. For example - do we think Victoria's Crown should be higher up? I'll admit it looks a bit boring, but it's based off the very real George IV State Diadem, which is a nice level of detail that I think should earn it a higher placing.
