Frederick II - Holy Roman Emperor from 1220 -1250
Obviously this picture gives us little indication of whether he was a hottie, but he’s definitely worthy of being on this blog because of how brilliant he was.
Known as stupor mundi (wonder of the world) he went on crusade in 1229, despite having been excommunicated, and regained control of Jerusalem without shedding a drop of blood by negotiating a treaty in Arabic (he was a polyglot, you know) which gave Christian control of Jerusalem, and left The Dome of the Rock in Muslim hands. Incidentally, he was keen to know all about Muslim culture, and spent a night praying at The Dome of the Rock.
Forget Richard the Lionheart - THAT’S how it’s done.
