Napoleon not acceptable as a type in? Come on!

Should it be? I'm not sure. Maybe a French person can weigh in.

I think Napoleon should be accepted. He is usually known as Napoleon III and most people do not know that his first name is in fact Louis-Napoleon. This question tripped me up at first when I tried to write Napoleon.

I don't think it should. I think writing solely Napoleon implies the first one too much.

Bonaparte also stands for Napoleon I so that doesn't change anything. I am French and I definitely think Napoleon should be accepted. Also Giscard should be enough for Giscard d'Estaing.

It's easier with Napoleon accepted, I think it's ok like that.

But I think useful to remind that "Napoléon III" was his denomination as emperor whereas "Louis-Napoléon Bonaparte" was his denomination as president, which is quite different !

I think it is good that Napoleon is accepted

It shoudn't be because it's not correct. Napoleon is Napoleon the 1st and not Louis-Napoleon Bonaparte. Napoleon never became a French president - they are not the same person Plus, Louis-Napoleon Bonaparte became Napoleon III but as an Emperor not as president...

Any chance of being a little more forgiving with the spelling for Giscard d'Estaing? That final "i" is sneaky and I had all the rest correct!

It could be accepted without the final "g", but the last "i" is important

Maybe the "i" is important for French pronunciation, but for an English language quiz, surely typing the name even without that "i" should prove that you know the answer, but just can't spell it.

Giscard should be enough. It's a bit colloquial, but many people just say that. VGE might be accepted as well.

Added many type-ins for d'Estaing

Funny, just d'Estaign seems to be the only type-in that would not work, yet I always thought that was his surname.

Happily Le Pen lost. Her ideology killed already more than 50 million people during the last century, it's enough.

So when you want to stop an ideology that promotes killing Jews and taking over Europe then you're a Nazi?

So sad that France elected Macron. Marine was their only hope. Have your cake and eat it. R.I.P. France.

The FN is a fascist party, there is no ambiguity. Fortunately, I'll still be able to go to France without feeling dirty.

Literally a fascist? Based on what? Because she wanted to curb immigration a little bit? Le Pen was too weak on the issue.

From reading the comments France is about to become either a Muslim caliphate or a Fascist dictatorship.

Well, the FN is a fascist party but couldn't win. And even if Le Pen was president, she couldn't that easily become a dictator. But she would try to isolate France, to get rid of the immigration, to muzzle the press and control the media and the arts, to reinforce the executive power, and so on... As for the "muslim caliphate", I just can't tell how stupid that was : Nowadays, most of France's population is christian and won't become muslim that easily. Do they think that the islamic state, Al Qaida or anything else could declare war to France? Come on, France has got the BOMB... There is no way France could become muslim in a near future (as the Quizmaster said elswhere, anything came happen on a larger scale, of course).

So you're saying that 35% of French voters voted for a fascist? That's hyperbole.

Not that much. Her father, Jean-Marie Le Pen, is an obvious fascist. She has tried to show a softer side, she has claimed that the party had become more respectable, but I seriously doubt it. Her aggressive attitude during the between tours debate says it all, which is by the way the reason why she didn't get 40% rather than 35...

Got the last five, plus de Gaulle, Poincare, and Bonaparte. The only other one that I've even heard of was Pompidou. Maybe Coty and Millerand... they sound vaguely familiar.
