No, he was not. Son of a minor village headman.

They were specifically excluded, so we're really voting for third best.

There is no contest in this really

Not sure why Gustav was excluded,
I can see Alexander, conquering half the known world is hard to beat.
But Gustav did some fighting, won some battles. Took over some geographically speaking tiny flecks of the planets surface. Then died and 70 years later, all he did was deleted and Sweden was never any power to speak of.

Frederick created the groundwork for what would be an unified Germany. And we feel the affects to this day.

There are others too on this list I'd put over Gustav.

How about Tiberius, Germanicus, Julian, or Basil II the Bulgar-Slayer?

Tokugawa Ieyasu wasn't part of any 'royal' family, unless fraudulently claiming descent from the Fujiwara or Minamoto counts. He'd also count as self-made, having essentially made himself Shogun.
