The clue of "conquered by Napoleon" could work for many state capitals such as Berlin, Madrid, Budapest, Bern, Amsterdam, Warsaw,...

"Relatively liberal Middle Eastern city" is there no better clue? There's also Ankara and Abu Dhabi...

Sigh... none of which begin with A and end with N. That's the idea of a chain. It eliminates other possible answers by specifying the first and last letter.

Point taken, but I think what AllenY is really trying to say is that there's got to be something more outstanding or unique about the city other than it is relatively liberal. Is that its greatest claim to fame? I can see the travel brochures now... "Come to Amman, we're Middle Eastern but we're relatively liberal so take a chance and visit! Now featuring....even more sand!!" Who could pass up an offer like that?

...and the key word here is "relatively". I mean, relatively speaking, Pol Pot wasn't indirectly responsible for the deaths of as many people as Stalin, right? Powerful word.

Interestingly, "Where King Abdullah lived" could also have been a clue for Amman

Wasn't Sarajevo the host of the 1994 Winter Olympics, not 1984, which I believe was Calgary?

If Ottawa is "near" the border of Ontario and Quebec, then I suppose it's impossible for a city, without spanning a river border, to be "on" that border?

I don't think the war-torn city is really "war-torn". It was safer than much of the rest of the country at the time.

Seconding tshalla- Ottawa is directly on the Ontario/Quebec border. Near is unnecessary.

Excellent quiz, except the Minsk clue, which is a little bit too obvious
