    Ahmad al-Mansur (Moroccan Arabic) - 24+1=25 - Nice friendly voice of nice frindly man.
    Ashurbanipal (Akkadian) - 23
    Askia (Zarma) - 20
    Attila (Chuvash) - 17-3=14 - I don't know how hard is to find a Chuvash speaker with good rough voice for Attila. Firaxis found someone with good voice. Ok. But when Chuvash speakers didn't realize that Attila was speaking Chuvash, something is wrong.

    Bismarck (German) - 24
    Boudicca (Welsh) - (22+1)=23 I remember a fellow Civfanatic being upset by the choice of Welsh instead of Proto-Brittonic, but that would be hard for Firaxis to pull that off. At least Welsh is a descendant or close relative of the language Boudicca would have spoken. Her VA does a great job playing the Iceni Queen.
