 Political Sermons of the American Founding Era: 1730-1805 - Part 2 1774-1781: The Online Library of Liberty
There are certain duties required of rulers, as well as of subjects; and their obligations faithfully and punctually to fulfil them, rise in proportion to the dignity and importance of their high and elevated stations; and the effect and influence which their conduct has on the rest of the body.
And when rulers refuse these, and will not comply with such a reasonable and equitable demand from the subject; the society is dissolved; and its fundamental laws violated and broken; and the relation between the ruler and the subject ceases, with all the duties and obligations that arose from it.
Thus rulers considered either in their legislative or executive capacity, are designed for the general and public good of the community they serve; they are the ministers of God, instituted and ordained to attend continually unto this very thing; and in both these capacities, they must be just.

 Guide and Index to Lists of Rulers
One motivation is that history is often not taught anymore in terms of dynasties and rulers, since this is thought (by an academic elite comfortably supported by the taxpayers) to be too elitist and too removed from the life of the people.
A skeleton for history of rulers, with maps and genealogies, provides a perspective of time and space, and on real individuals whom we know about, that is otherwise hard to obtain.
This is all collapsed in the table above into the category of "Pre-Roman Rulers," but it is, of course, a vast subject, beginning with Egypt and Sumer and continuing right up to the kingdoms of the Hellenistic age.

 Queen Luise / FemBio: Women of Hanover
Germany and France could boast no female rulers of this stature; their "great eras" were those of the "Sun King" Louis XIV and Frederick the Great, and the latter was an admitted misogynist.
Luise was and still is the most popular German queen by far—beautiful, graceful, serene, gentle, natural, charming, without airs or arrogance, and—after a brief phase of youthful rebellion, which was soon completely driven out of her—unconditionally devoted to her somewhat overtaxed and often ill-humored husband, the Prussian King Friedrich Wilhelm III.
She was the exact opposite of the self-confident rulers Isabella, Elizabeth, Maria Theresia and Catherine and was thus especially well suited to become the beloved and soon mythically glorified model of German womanhood.
