I'm shocked that I managed to get Yankee, since I'm not American, but failed to get Nelson, Hitler, Trench, Rhodes and Israel.

At first I thought you were asking who banned the Nabokov book. I was trying to think of six-letter names such as Boston or France which fit the puzzle. Finally it dawned on me you wanted the name of the book. Duh.

I'm a bit confused here, what does Eunuchs have to do with history?! I don't see why this would be included in this quiz.

Eunuchs have a lot to do with history. They often served as bureaucrats in the Byzantine Empire, China, and many other places. They were considered more trustworthy because they could not hope to overthrow the ruler and establish their own dynasty.

Castrati were boys who were castrated so as to retain a high singing voice in adulthood. Thankfully, this practice has ended, although it went on longer than you might think. The last castrato died in 1922.

From Wikipedia : Eunuchs were familiar figures in the Assyrian Empire (ca. 850 until 622 BC) and in the court of the Egyptian Pharaohs (down to the Lagid dynasty known as Ptolemies, ending with Cleopatra, 30 BC). Eunuchs sometimes were used as regents for underage heirs to the throne, as it seems to be the case for the Neo-Hittite state of Carchemish.[24] Political eunuchism became a fully established institution among the Achamenide Persians.[25] Eunuchs held powerful positions in the Achaemenide court. The eunuch Bagoas (not to be confused with Alexander's Bagoas) was the Vizier of Artaxerxes III and IV, and was the primary power behind the throne during their reigns, until he was killed by Darius III.[26]
