Warning - hard quiz - for history buffs only! Yes, you do have to enter the monarch's ordinal, if applicable. For others, last name only is acceptable. Good luck!

You should accept Lord Salisbury for Cecil.

@PresidentJSC - Done! There are now six correct answers - he was a man of many names and titles, wasn't he?

Weird to describe Alfonso XIII as the leader of Spain in 1900 - he was 13 years old and his mother was regent.

Also, Ferdinand I was only prince of Bulgaria in 1900 - he became tsar/king in 1908.
Oct 26th, 2009 at 19:07 GMT
@johnlk Wow, you know your stuff! I have adjusted Ferdinand, but I left Alfonso as is; although he was a youngster, he still held the title of "king" and taht iswhat the clue refers to. Good to know, though!

I tried various combinations of Franz, Francis, Josef and Joseph; at least allow the consistent combination of Franz Josef (and perhaps Francis Joseph)
Dec 16th, 2009 at 01:34 GMT
@shakescene: I have added Franz Josef! It's kind of an oversight, as the quiz already accepts the Hungarian Ferenc Jozsef!

You should include Dick Seddon for New Zealand Prime minister and Edmund Barton as elected leader of the Australian federation after the Western Australians voted yes in 1899, along with Paul Kruger as the leader of the Afrikaner Boer states

@Hermes76: One of those is already a bonus! Thanks for playing! I also have a World Leaders on September 1, 1939 quiz for history fans!

If Alfonso XIII is put instead of his mother, why isn't Guangxu on there instead of Cixi?
Jan 22nd, 2010 at 00:48 GMT
: I am guessing it's because the Clue says Empress Dowager and Guangxu wasn't old enough or female enough!
Jan 26th, 2010 at 22:18 GMT
@caramba - yes, but why is the clue asking for the empress dowager for China, but the king for Spain. Alfonso XIII and Guangxu were both formally the head of state, but neither had real political power. Maria Cristina and Cixi in both cases had all real power. I'd also had that Ferdinand was not Prince-Regent of Bulgaria, which implies that he was ruling on behalf of someone else - a minor or someone mentally incapacitated. He was just Prince of Bulgaria, in the same way that Albert II is presently the Prince of Monaco, or Hans Adam II is Prince of Liechtenstein.
