American Civil War? Also can you accept Spanish War and Mexican War? Missed Great Pyramids because it's the only one in that block without an underline prompt - I should look harder next time!

The American Civil War is not included because it wasn't considered an international declaration of war as the Confederacy wasn't officially recognized by anyone other than themselves.

"Declared" is the key word here. In 2003 and 1991 there was no declaration of war by the US against Iraq; in Korea and Vietnam the US government didn't recognize the northern, communist governments so there was no declaration of war. The CSA was, as has already been pointed out not recognized, so no declaration. The Revolutionary War was just that - a revolution, not an international conflict between two established nations. In Afghanistan the ostensible conflict involved the US giving support to overthrow the Taliban, not an openly declared conflict between the US and Afghanistan.

Agreed - North Korea is not by any measure officially communist anymore. Juche is its official state ideology. The ruling party is the Korean Workers Party, no mention of communism and all remaining references to communism have been scrapped. North Korea should be removed from the answer.

I also missed the Great Pyramids because the line was blank when all others had words and blanks in them, and I just didn't see it. Could you perhaps write it as, " ___ _____ of ___" to keep it consistent with the others? (Although with 44% getting it correct, it doesn't seem to be a huge problem for others.) Great quiz, BTW.

I also thought of Timur the Lame. He was arguably as great as Temujin or Kublai, though how does one gauge such a thing? Most historians would probably rank him 3rd.

I looked it up. Al-Andalus appears to be a somewhat generic term that refers to Muslim-occupied Spain over a period of several hundred years. The actual nation at the time was the Emirate of Granada.

Tried umpteen variations on the Great Pyramid of Giza and finally gave up. Turns out the quiz only accepts "Pyramids." The answer should be singular. While there are three pyramids in the Giza Necropolis only the Great Pyramid is one of the Seven Wonders. (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Great_Pyramid_of_Giza.)

It should, as it's entirely located in the Southern slopes of the Pyrenees and it was (more or less) an independent country since 1278. In fact, the entire question it's a bit of a mess, because the "crown of Aragon" was not a country, but a group of countries in personal union including the the Principality of Catalonia, the kingdom of Aragon and the kingdom of Valencia.
