Elizabeth I did not establish Protestantism in England. Henry VIII, her father, was the first monarch to introduce a new state religion to the English, the Anglican church. In 1532, he wanted to divorce his wife, Catherine of Aragon. When Pope Clement VII refused to consent to the divorce, Henry VIII decided to separate the entire country of England from the Roman Catholic Church.

A Medieval Frenchwoman, a sixteenth century Englishwoman,two women we’d never heard of, and no fewer than three American women make up the cut. Well done America!

How can you include Oprah Winfrey in this list? She is nothing more than a TV person who has made money by wheeling and dealing. She is and always has been very self-centered and would climb over anyone to get whatever she wanted. She would never get my vote for anything

I've never heard of Cesária Évora before today! My vote goes to Eleanor Roosevelt. Oprah is definitely to be honored because of what she had to overcome. And what about Mother Teresa? Well there are very many special women of history ... and a lot of them have not even been recognized to date!!!

My vote goes to Eleanor Roosevelt. Wonderful, compassionate, selfless person. And please don't add Michelle ... I'm even suspect of Oprah's presence.

Eleanor of Aquitaine's third son Geoffrey was in line to be king after her second son, Richard, died...since Geoffrey was already dead, his son Arthur should have been king...why wasn't he?...ask Eleanor...
