You could put 1+2 in a quiz and then say yes well they was a mathematician born in this country.
Just because words exists and a person that was born in that country used words is not a reason to put it on a quiz. Not even if that someone had a way with words and invented many himself. (And to be clear forsooth is not one of those words)
That said I don't mínd it being there, but if there was a question which of these might not belong on this quiz, the vocabulary one would be the answer ;)
the codebreakers were definitely deserving as well, I don't know anything about the battle of waterloo so I can't say whether they were also deserving.
