Ouch, that is some serious overkill. As my ruler is the Son of God, can my kingdom be your ally? :lol:
I've a brave warrior in my army. Shen Ai is his name, and he can slay this Hua Xiong.

Wei has no more famous commanders, Shen Ai takes lead of the vanguard!

Ruler - Mao Zedong
Grand Commander of the Military - Erwin Rommel
Generals (2) - Zhao Yun, Arthur Currie
Diplomat - Liu Bei
Ministers (2) - Plato, Myself!, Lu Su

For generals and commanders, I figure people of old have less knowledge and ability than modern ones in terms of tactics, and the general population's views change. Thus, Zhao Yun for the past, and because he's one of my favourite historical people, and Arthur Currie for more present (I'm Canadian after all). And Rommel is just OP.
The time shouldn't matter for the rest.

Arthur Currie, of course! How could I miss him?! The best general in Canadian history, head of the Canada Corp, hero of Passchendaele, Hill 70 and Vimy Ridge. He is a Canadian hero and ranks at the top along with David Suzuki and Robert Borden for me.

I'll play this game.

Ruler: Zeus
Grand Commander: Artemis
Generals: Ares, Hektor
Diplomat: Aphrodite (Who'd say no to her?)
Ministers: Mentor, Ulysses
I don't write fanfic, but if I did it would involve Zhou Yu and Zheng He fighting to win the heart of Lai Choi San. Then I'd make them join forces to fight Ming the Merciless, who secretly works for Master Li. I'd squeeze Lu Bu in there somehow.

Out of all those gods, the only one I like is Artemis. Aphrodite kept cheating on Hephestus, and Zeus was a rapist. Even the Greeks didn't really respect them. What happened to Dionysus, the god of wine? He'd be much more persuasive. :P

I picked Charlemagne because I can't think of anybody who was no only so successful, but also so loved by the people. I'm sure there are rulers I'm not thinking of, but he is the one that sticks out the most to me.

Machiavelli would be good. And if you have Temujin, then no one can touch you.

Ruler: Julius Caesar
Grand Commander: Kublai Khan
Generals: Takeda Shingen and John Churchill(Duke of Marlborough)
Diplomat: Machiavelli
Ministers: Winston Churchill and Cao Shen

A new, realistic team. If I was joking, I would still use Jesus, Moses and Odin.

Here's mine (apologies if it looks a bit too English)...

Ruler: Oswald of Northumbria
Grand Commander: Arthur Wellesley, Duke of Wellington
Generals: William Tecumseh Sherman (post-depression) and Knud den Store (yes, I get two English kings)
Diplomat: Klemens von Metternich
Ministers: Zhou Gong Dan and Thomas More

As for Charlemagne, Liao Ce, I'm going to have to disagree there. Li Shimin, Tang Taizong has been incredibly well-received both by his people and fairly consistently by Chinese historians, as well as being an incredibly effective ruler, establishing one of the longest-lived dynasties in China. Also, Charlemagne has not been particularly well-regarded by the people living in what was once the Eastern half of his empire for the simple reason of the Blutgericht von Verden.
Some more blood, Chekov. The needle won't hurt, Chekov. Take off your shirt, Chekov. Roll over, Chekov. Breathe deeply, Chekov. Blood sample, Chekov! Marrow sample, Chekov! Skin sample, Chekov! If I live long enough... I'm going to run out of samples.

Well given that in Exodus 18: 'Now I know that YHUH is greater than all gods: for in the thing wherein they dealt proudly he was above them.', I'd say I still win. :lol:

Ok, you got a team full of gods. And someone said my kingdom was overkill...

I wouldn't rate the Duke of Wellington over John Churchill. Otto V0n Bismark would be a great diplomat. He was pretty awesome.
