Foxy Ferdie for dinner! How fabulous.Don't let any handsome young waiters serve him or there'll be trouble even before the soup is served.

Great topic!  Think I'd invite all women...

1) Anne Boleyn
2) Elizabeth I

These two would be enough for the perfect dinner.

3) Queen Marie of Romania
4) Lady Jane Grey
5) Queen Carlotta of Mexico
6) Mafalda of Italy
7) Elizabeth Woodville, Queen of Edward IV
8) Empress Elizabeth of Austria
9)  Maria Feodorovna
10) Margaret Tudor, Queen of Scotland

My rule would be that there should be five men and five women but none of them can be each other's spouses. So here goes...

- Queen Elizabeth I
- Queen Victoria
- Anne Boleyn
- Theodora (6th century)
- Catherine the Great
- Tsar Nicholas II
- Alexander II
- Kaiser Wilhelm II
- Julius Caesar
- Genghis Khan

I've given this some thought with regards to US Presidents and First Ladies as well. So here's that list too, just for fun. Unfortunately I'll have to omit Eleanor Roosevelt since her husband has already been invited to the party :-)

- Theodore Roosevelt
- Franklin Roosevelt
- Thomas Jefferson
- Abraham Lincoln
- Andrew Jackson
- Jackie Kennedy
- Dolly Madison
- Abigail Adams
- Hillary Clinton
- Sarah Polk

Once in a while you get shown the light, in the strangest of places if you look at it right...
