Shouldn't Habsburg (/Lorraine) also count, as last names mostly do? Bronte counts, two possibilties there.

Just allowing Bronte for the "Jane Eyre" question is a bit naff!

I admit I wasn't sure of the first name, but It would have been my second guess. I think most people would guess either "E" or "C" and get it, so I don't think it matters.

Eh, I see your point, but people generally lump the Bronte sisters together mentally, so if you know it's by a Bronte, then you just need to shuffle through the three names (or, if you don't know Anne, the two names) and you'll get it. I think allowing the last name only is basically just saving time.

I always remember Anne before the others, but only because her she died (and is buried) in the town where I live :)

Why is “empire” in quotation marks? It legally was an Empire and Brazil is certainly big enough.
