Isn't bourgeoisie one of the Three Estates?

I too wish this would have been accepted

It would be completely uncorrect. The bourgeoisie is only a very small part of the common people. This is part of the reason why the revolted: a huge part of the population had a single vote, and always lost against two minorities that had one vote each.

Bourgeouisie is a later term, referring to the middle class. It didn't originate until the 19th century (as, in fact, the middle class itself didn't start to emerge until the 18th); ergo, it couldn't have been one of the third estates, which dated back to medieval times.

In fact, the refusal to include the wealthy middle class of the late 18th century in France's privileged elite of the Second Estate (i.e. the nobility) was one of the major sparks of the French Revolution.

I kept typing USA, UK, and Russia for the three allied power leaders, wondering why it wouldn't take any of them. I tried every variation of spelling I could think of even to "The United States of America." Never considered you were asking for men, not countries. Sigh.

I did the same thing. I missed all three in that category because it didn't dawn on me that it was asking for people.

Have to say, proud of this one. Wasn't that fussed about the Spanish possessions, then suddenly thought, "Oh, Guam and Puerto Rico!", leaving only the Chinese inventions incomplete.

A very nice quiz. I would certainly add tea, silk and, yes, china to the list of important Chinese inventions. Also, you should specify that you are interested in the ships Columbus used on the first of his four voyages (of course these are by far the most famous ones, but out of respect for precision, we should acknowledge tat Columbus actually commanded many more ships in his service of the Spanish crown).

Tea comes from a plant and silk comes from a worm. I wouldn't call them inventions, more discoveries.

Level 67
Aug 29, 2019
What? you don't discover these, they have to be processed (if not, all those poor silkworms wouldnt be cooked). That way you could say most things werent invented, because the material used for it allready excisted.

Not really the same. The Yuan dynasty doesn't include the western possession of the Mongols.

I feel like 'church' should be acceptable for clergy, especially when 'nobles' and 'commoners' are. Also pretty sure i typed 'spain' for the empires, and didn't get it, but when i typed 'russia' I got russian empire :/

Church will work now. You must not have typed Spain, though, because it would have worked.

As you accept chuch, when typing churchill, clergy appears, would never have got it otherwise.

@Shark61695, that's how I got clergy. I wouldn't have otherwise figured out what the category meant.

Not at all. There was and is plenty of nobility that aren't members of royal houses.
