8. Britain was Scotland and England (and Wales) before the 17th century

Go back earlier, and you'd probably also include William Wallace and Robert the Bruce leading Scotland against the English, or Edward I against Scotland, and Wales. Or William I against Harold ...

It was also qualified by "had to have led an army in the field against the British", so it's very much down to individuals. Only Joan of Arc would be well known as a successful leader from the Hundred Years' War period, and I think her leadership was morale-based, rather than strategic of tactical.
