You have William the Conqueror on your list twice, just so you know.

My vote would probably go towards Canute the Great. However, despite some of the other things he's done, Haakon the Good overall was a good ruler also.

Cerdic and Cynric are also worthy mentioning.

perhaps you should change the title to greatest leaders? two of your choices (Rolf and Erik) were not exactly Kings:)
