About This Quiz

Back in the day, a ruler had to be fierce. Well, I guess they didn't really have to be, they only had to if they wanted to actually to keep their kingdom, protect their people, and survive. Just about every ruler through history tried to be tough, whether they were trying to conquer other lands or only wanted to protect their own. Those who didn't do all that well at this have been quickly forgotten it, and those who were particularly ruthless and succeeded have become famous.

What about you? If you were living in a past life, which of these ancient rulers might you be? There are plenty to choose from, all of whom had different personalities and different methods of ruling and surviving, whether it be Charlemagne, Boudica, Genghis Khan, or Attila the Hun. People might not know how fierce you are, after all, you might want to go the next town over and do a little slaughtering and pillaging, but that kind of thing is easier said than done these days: besides, you need to get up early tomorrow for your Orange Theory class. So, for now, you'll just have to be satisfied with taking this quiz and finding out.
