    How about Franklin Pierce for the Gadsden Purchase?

    Somehow I don't think he'd be very popular.

    The Gadsden Purchase was an independent nation?

    Hi again. I'm back with more suggestions.

    Seretse Khama of Botswana is a really strong choice for a modern African leader and Arturo Umberto Illia is a pretty good modern leader choice for Argentina.

    I would change Norway to Scandinavia and make it 2 leaders Civ - one for old Vikings (same leader Harald or Ragnar Lodbrok for symbolic leader or Knut for more realistic one) flavor type game
    - one for modern(-ish) welfare state type of game. Could use for example Margaret I.

    Khama III would also be a good choice for Botswana.

    Harald is a real leader unlike Ragnar of course.

    Henry V had a mighty fleet and a wondrous martial spirit (not just at Agincourt). He would be an excellent leader choice for England in future Civ installments.

    Also, Nur Jahan for India (female ruler). She held court when the emperor was unwell, was considered the real power behind the Mughal throne at "the height of its glory" for around 15 years, struck coinage in her name, was a patron of architecture, and a fierce and skilled marksman known for killing tigers.

    Consider this:

    After sharing what I learned about the Tarascan king Zuangua in the More Alternate Leaders thread, I looked up some info on the Zapotec kings. This source (starting on page 532) has some decent info on kings Zaachila I, Zaachila III, and Cociyoeza (which is also spelt as Cosijoeza). This source also has more info on Zaachila I and Cociyoeza. That search was a little harder than I thought considering that Zaachila is the name of a kingdom, city, and 3 kings!

    I also stumbled upon some other Tlingit leaders like Chief Xet-su-wu (starting on page 44) and Chief Kohklux who was the grandfather of Louis Shotridge(these sources show more of his character).

    Since Hungary has been revealed as an official Civ 6 civ, I've moved them up to the first list. Congratulations, Hungary!

    I've noticed that Tutankhamun isn't on the list for Egypt and the more I think about it he could have an interesting playstyle.
    Since England isn't going to have British Museums anymore I think it would be interesting if he could have bonuses similar to that.
    Tomb of Tutankhamun:
    Artifacts from Egypt are automatically themed in an archaeological museum.
    You gain more tourism from another civilization if they acquire an artifact from Egypt.

    That has nothing to do with his actual reign though.
    I'm not adding Tut because he was a mediocre ruler.

    Well it was worth a shot. Jadwiga got extra bonuses from relics, which I assume were based off of her. Oh well.

    Well, Tut would be the first inbred Civ Leader if he was added. :p

    There are a lot more actual Egyptian rulers who are more worthy than King Tut. :p

    Alfonso III of Asturias would be a good one for Spain, his advances in the early Reconquista were quite notable

    Ok, the Maori have been moved to the alternate leaders list. Congratulations Maori!

    The Polynesia blob has been killed and their leaders moved to the Hawaii, Samoa, Tahiti, and Tonga leader lists under the New Civs.
