Dammit! I was just about to guess that. Good one, KO.

I would say any ruler or head of state is "political" for Botticelli purposes.

Previous IQs:

Were you known for your decorative structural columns? - Got my wires crossed - I was thinking Doric, Corinthian and Iconian.
Were you shot full of arrows while in a river? - Isildur, when the One Ring betrayed him and fell off his finger, exposing him to attack by orcs in LOTR
Were you David Bowie's wife? - Yes, Iman
