I think this is the first "first!" comment I've seen on this site, actually. Make a habit of it and I'm sure you'll be very popular.

You've Celticized it. Maybe something more Germanic like Aeldenglisc.

You should allow 'Oranje', for 'Orange'. It also start with a O, and it is the real name of Willem van Oranje.

I would have guessed that answer anyway because it's the only ancient Mexican civilization I know of that begins with the letter O, but I only knew about the large heads from "history of the entire world, i guess."

I was surprised too, because when I think of cartels, the first things that come to mind are drug cartels in Mexico and Colombia. I looked the word up and found out that "cartel" means any group that cooperates to limit competition from others (using unfair methods).

"Land Rush"... some USA related place... what state starts with "O"? tried "Oregon", mistakenly got another answer which I would never have gotten legitimately.

I wouldn't have gotten it solely on history. However, "Oregon Trail" seems to be the answer whenever both computer games and dysentry is mentioned.

The name "William of Orange" usually denotes either William the Silent or William III of England. Neither of them was king of the Netherlands, they were stadholders. King William I was of the house of Orange, but is rarely called 'William of Orange'.
