let's say you are a princess
What time period would you rule in?: Ancient Greece.
Which country or region would you rule over?: See above. :)
Which monarch (mythical or real) do you most admire (in terms of political ability, court life, looks, etc)?: I've always liked Anne Boleyn, as another monarch outside of the Greek myth. But I just adore Greek Mythology so much - I love the Circe and the Aphrodite types. I'm just scandalous like that, I suppose. I'm also a fan of Lysistrata, just because she's so headstrong and feminist it cracks me up.
Although there are several ladies of Shakespeare that I also adore - Olivia, from 12th Night, Lady MacBeth, Beatrice from Much Ado.
Describe your court and your wardrobe: Well...think the movie 300, for the most part. Not quite as intense as Sparta, though.
Describe your prince (or princess!): I suppose I'm allowed to go for a Greek God, yes? I'd definitely take Apollo. Or Dionysus might be more fun, to satisfy the theatre kid in me.
Which comes first: your prince or your ladies-in-waiting?: Ladies-in-waiting. A must to consult on matters of the prince, of course.
How do you view/feel about love?: Its spectacular, really. Passionate, consuming, inconvienient. But worth it.

at least 2 clear ones, please! if not, a detailed description.

definetely gonna say circe. i was thinking helen of troy but i think her personality is a little too weak for you; "Its spectacular, really. Passionate, consuming, inconvienient" sounded more like circe, who's willing to admit the more extreme and negative sides of love, as opposed to being dreamy.

Circe seems to be a fine fit for you.
