Queen Elizabeth II (#26), Monarch of the United Kingdom, is the eldest stateswoman on the list at eighty-six years old.
The Queen is joined by a number of lady rulers, such as 50-year-old Julia Gillard (#27), who is the Prime Minister of Australia, and Cristina Fernandez de Kirchner (#16), age 59, who is the first elected female president of Argentina.
