Aside from the possibility of the above inclusion, decent quiz.
Jul 2nd, 2010 at 14:50 GMT
Yes, Belgium should definitely be on here.
Jul 2nd, 2010 at 16:28 GMT
Perhaps you could also include their official names, just for our information.
Jul 2nd, 2010 at 16:35 GMT
Belgium is not in my source, but I shall certainly put it in nonetheless.
Jul 2nd, 2010 at 18:40 GMT
Belgium's official name is Royaume de Belgique which translates as Kingdom of Belgium.
Jul 2nd, 2010 at 21:58 GMT
ok it's there now, calm down, calm down. i made a mistake, now i have fixed it. sorry i'll try harder in future to strive for perfection.
Jul 4th, 2010 at 22:38 GMT
Good stuff, flixuk.
Jul 5th, 2010 at 06:14 GMT
: I see where you're coming from. Sometimes people don't differentiate between a poorly-constructed quiz and a simple, honest mistake. This was an excellent quiz.
Jul 5th, 2010 at 16:32 GMT
This is a good quiz. For the record, I don't think anyone (in this case) was getting too hard on the quiz creator ... just making a constructive suggestion (several times, for sure, but nothing more).
Jul 5th, 2010 at 18:53 GMT
go monarchies! this was an excellent quiz
Jul 6th, 2010 at 09:52 GMT
but even after the correction, they don't go back and change their orb-rating...
Jul 8th, 2010 at 16:58 GMT
I wasn't very good at this quiz, but I like the idea. Possibly have the full name? I'm now curious to know what the long form of each country is.
Jul 8th, 2010 at 20:09 GMT
@bubblin_around, i did do that at first, but realised it was stupid because they are all just 'Kingdom of' apart from Jordan (Hashemite Kingdom of) and the United Kingdom (of Great Britain and Northern Ireland), so it seemed pretty pointless.

reading all the press about the recent royal wedding in Sweden - and all the royal guests - help me a lot.
Jul 11th, 2010 at 05:22 GMT
Bah, there's always one of those island nations screwing with everyone. Great quiz!
Jul 11th, 2010 at 06:33 GMT
Nigeria has to be a kingdom. Just the other day, I got an email from the royal prince asking me to help with some finances.
Jul 11th, 2010 at 08:01 GMT
I was sure it was The Kingdom of Brunei.
Jul 11th, 2010 at 08:14 GMT
@Getoka: Brunei's official name is "State of Brunei, abode of peace"
Jul 11th, 2010 at 09:11 GMT
yay! I've never had a quiz published before! :D
Jul 11th, 2010 at 09:37 GMT
@Getoka Brunei (along with Oman) is a Sultanate
Jul 11th, 2010 at 10:51 GMT
If it weren't for the fact that everyone here is a sporcler and can hence name every country in the world in 3 minutes, I reckon I could have done really well in this one...
Jul 11th, 2010 at 11:05 GMT
Bhutan's King is a mouthful!
Jul 11th, 2010 at 11:10 GMT
That's what she said.
Jul 11th, 2010 at 11:20 GMT
That's not fair, North and South America don't have any funny named princes. We should give the Mayans their own kingdom back for this purpose.
Jul 11th, 2010 at 11:51 GMT
bla, that was hard, and I just found myself guessing somewhat randomly and I hate doing that. But good quiz though
Jul 11th, 2010 at 11:52 GMT
Wangchuck is easily the best surname in regal history.
Jul 11th, 2010 at 12:06 GMT
I did abysmally. Wish you had printed the official (long form) country names.
Jul 11th, 2010 at 14:10 GMT
Oh sure, the first quiz I don't randomly guess Lesotho and it bites me in the butt.
Jul 11th, 2010 at 14:19 GMT
This would have been the perfect quiz to have the Kingdom of Zamunda as a bonus answer. Anyone? Coming to America with the king played by James Earl Jones? Maybe you kids are too young..
Jul 11th, 2010 at 14:22 GMT
I'm with you ef, good film. Missed Netherlands and Belgium but got the 3 least guessed and the B's. Can live with that.

"WIpers" (clap clap).
Jul 11th, 2010 at 17:53 GMT
Too bad Kyrgyzstan couldn't be on this quiz...
Jul 11th, 2010 at 17:56 GMT
Great quiz flixuk
Jul 11th, 2010 at 21:44 GMT
This quiz very well might have been published in honor of today's World Cup final- both Spain and Netherlands are kingdoms.
Jul 11th, 2010 at 22:03 GMT
why has the rating gone so far down since it was published...?
Jul 11th, 2010 at 22:26 GMT
Elvis Costello is the King of America.
Jul 12th, 2010 at 01:08 GMT
Great quiz, and once I started it, much more difficult than I expected. Very interesting subject.
Jul 12th, 2010 at 01:25 GMT
And because of Fifa, I knew KSA.
Jul 12th, 2010 at 03:02 GMT
Yes I'm a 2.3%er because I kept thinking "kingdom of" countries I completely missed the UK even though I got Tonga. D'oh!
