I have to go with Kamehameha the Great. To me he's an even better example of "a guy gets his backwards people into the industrial era in one lifetime and actually succeeds" than the Meiji restoration.

Gjerj Kastrioti / Skanderbeg. Albanian national hero, defended against the greatly superior Ottoman forces for 25 years until his death, often with very little resources and almost no outside support. Don't know if he counts as a monarch, but he entitled himself 'Lord of Albania' which is good enough for me

I actually like Emperor Meiji the most

It's amazing how someone so young (He was only a teenager when he became emperor) was able to transform the country from a feudal society at the risk of being under control by western powers like China to become a major world power in its own right. Granted, one factor was his governments ability to incorporate western influences while still keeping Japanese values and culture, but its one of the biggest success stories for any non-western country of all time. Even to this day, Japan has continued being a highly developed and prosperous country. And of course who can forget that time it destroyed Russia in 1905.

Maybe I just like Japan too much, but Meiji is definitely one of my favorite monarchs in the world.

Personally, Traian and Charles V.
Traian because he was just and honest, and he brought the Roman Empire to its maximum expansion.
Charles V because he was the kindest monarch of the 16th century, he was truly catholic, and he has been able to hold an empire like his for almost 40 years.

Tiglath-Pileser III, he created the first ever professional standing army that was capable of year round campaigns. He also reformed the provincial administrative system of Assyria, designing it in a way that discouraged revolts of subordinate officials thereby stabilizing the empire which set the stage for it to extend to its greatest size.
