For the nth time, I think that I made the questions too easy.  The questions will be much harder next time.

I think that the questions for this particular quiz are pretty good. The hardest question is not necessarily the best question.

Now,the first question is wrongly asked, I think...What is meant couldn't be asked well, or there is a deliberate mind trick out there :)

Interesting point. I could easily say the founder of Islam is God. Since He is the source. Then I could go onto say...
Well, I won't answer cause others are bound to join in on the quiz.

Exactly, there is a contradiction over there...Maybe the question shall be amended a bit.

There. Managed to sneak in a break from work. Hopefully I'll have time to search for answers tonight (next time please don't choose a weekend Tongue).
 
Many questions were really tough this time, nothing gives you a hint on where to start.Thumbs Up

I think we safely can assume all questions are atheistic in nature and make the answers from there.

That occurred to me as well. 'Widely acknowledged' is a bit ambiguous. 'Most widely acknowledged' might have been better.

I was sure I was right for 0.75 on 18. Maybe it hasn't registered yet? I can't remember the order I put them in in.
 
Or are there two similar incidents that occurred on different occasions?

Your set of answers is not correct for that question. However, if you think you've found an "alternate" answer, we can bring it up to Poirot, who wrote the question.

I have some questions for clarification:

1. Question 14: is the title necessarily king, or can it be some other equivalent appelation (like emperor, prince, monarch, etc.)

2. Question 11: we are talking about 15th century AD, right?

1.  Yes, king meaning king.  Somebody has already gotten calvary4fever's intended answer.

2. Yes, 15th century AD.  This, I think, is a fair question.  It deserves a spot higher than 11, but you can get it.

Your answer must satisfy ALL of the constraints given in the question.
