I think Decebal means the Eastern Jin Dynasty - he has been reading a lot in this area.

Good job everyone, participants and moderators! That was a much harder quiz than the previous one; last time I got 14 right, this time I'd be happy if I could reach double digits.

I want to thank the person who scored my first submission and counted my answer to question 6 as correct! You have to give it to me, I was very close Big%20smile
Q 1-4: easy as usually
Q5: I answered Paris (from the Parisii tribe), which apparently is not close enough, but I couldn't come closer. Initially I was looking for China and India...
Q7: Sometimes, in order to answer a question, you just have to read the clues and let your imagination free to see the broader picture. I should get this one.
Q8: For some reason guillotine is the first thing that came to my mind.
Q9: I was looking at Africa but not so south.
Q10: Relatively easy, Marx and Engels were my first candidates, finding the writer took me just a few minutes given the more-than-enough clues.
Q 11-14: Too hard for me...
Q15: Actually I found the answer to this one, but sth went wrong with the submission. What to say, it was around 4 a.m. Sleepy
Q16: IMO it was much easier than #16 suggests. Then again I learned about heretics such as Nestorius and Arius at school.
Q 17-20: The joy of the moderators lol

I't appears I wasn't the only one to think about the Gokturks for question 19 (great minds think alike) and I even looked up the founder of the Seljuk empire!
as for question 11............I spent hours looking up every cortesan from the 19th century and all I managed to learn was that Edward VII of england and Louis XV of France were sleeping with half the country!
Common sense is not common.

I do not subscribe to a school of thought, I subscribe to thought.

I have reached an important part in my search for the answer; after reading through most of the ever existed English writers, I believe I can narrow the search down. Those who are yet searching however don't let yourself be distracted, I might be wrong...

Great disappointment among the Icelandic supporters of Ulrich von Hutten.
Once again he couldn't approve that he is a promissing Historian but a total fool by answering Question No 11 with Marlene Dietrich!!! EmbarrassedClap

I believe that I should have searched a little bit more yesterday.. Starting to find the correct answer 20 minutes before deadline isn't wise...

But I reached an important conclusion and then I crashed FF with all the necessary tabs open... doomed. Yet I submitted one answer, most probably a wrong one but still a guess.. I think that the correct answer is tied to condotierri?

So it wasn't a condotierri? Then my guess was totally idiotic (even if he wasn't a condotierri). But he would fit 3/4 of the conditions...
