Surprised Louis XV isn't on the list too. Not saying I'd vote for him, but there's a continuity between XIV and XVI that runs through him.

You can suggest I add him when I add for suggestions after I finish my list.

Off topic but has anyone else noticed replies appearing out of order on the forum lately? Patine's post appeared *after* Edouard's despite apparently being posted before it, and this is like the 4th or 5th time this seems to have happened when I've been reading in the past week.

Yeah his posts are pre-moderated by decision of the forum mods. A mod has to be on the forum to approve them or not.

Also I totally feel like I have over 50 and we’re only halfway through the names lmao

My method is that check people that arguably could be in. This probably means I check 150 people.
