    Meh. Emperor Claudius would have been a better choice. I don't recall George Washington invading England and enslaving the population he didn't slaughter.

    Although, to be fair, the Romans did bring civilisation.

    i have considerable respect for Washington, but if they're talking about enemy generals, I think Napoleon really has to top the list, or perhaps William of Normandy if you want to restrict it to foes who actually won their wars.

    'Britain' didn't exist before the Romans.
