Some of the lists on our rulers are unassailable, such as Presidents of the United States, or Kings and Queens of England. Others, however, we admit are subjective choices.
When coming up with a list of rulers, our experienced research team looks into such factors as fame, achievements and diversity. We try to list well-known people as well as some who might surprise you. We do our best to create the best possible list according to current thinking, including, when appropriate, women and minorities. But we understand that you might think differently.
If you disagree with one of our choices, we want to hear from you! If we left out your favorite artist or musician, make an argument for adding that person to our list in the future. However, and here’s the tough part, for every person you want us to add, you must also recommend someone to remove from the list. There’s only so much room on the ruler!Send us a note below. Make your best case. If we agree with you, we will make the change the next time that ruler is produced, and, if you are the first person to make the suggestion, we’ll send you the first ruler off the production line.
