Technically aren't all of the kings of a line that are first called great.

Like William I is William the Great or James I is James the Great...

Economic Communist, Political Progressive, Social Conservative.

Unless otherwise noted source is wiki.

Nope, they have to actually have it in their name, or be called so as a ephithet by people. For example, Charlemagne was Carolus Magnus (in latin), meaning Charles the Great.

Yup, and that's the reason the Scandinavian name "Magnus" exist. Common peasants hearing stories about the great hero "Karlmagnus", and naming their sons after him...

I'm not sure he is a 'Great', just a Lionhearted.
Rhodri and Llywelyn were both Greats (Fawr).

Indeed he is, Gustavus Adolphus the Great. Add him too.

Theres also Akbar the great, infact, there are probably several Moghul rulers who could qualify, as many of them had names like that.

ugh take Justinian down, all of his success was depended on one of the greatest general's in Roman history and besides his foolish building projects, though they made Constantinople the greatest city of the western world, bankrupted the empire.
