I tried Tepes and Dracula before I was like "Vlad the...what?"

level 47
Aug 14, 2013
for Mussolini, he was known a il Duce or IL Duce. That should be acceptable
+1
level 73
Aug 14, 2013
Il is just the article. There is no article in the analogy written before the title used for Hitler.
+1
level 24
Aug 15, 2013
It should still be an accepted answer.

level 17
Aug 17, 2013
I agree. I've only ever seen "Il Duce", never "Duce" by itself. The literal translation isn't really the point is it?

Il duce is valid only if the clue says DER fuhrer.
+1
level 35
Jan 28, 2016
His title was "Duce" and that is how he was often addressed. Although he was referred to as "Il Duce", no one called him that. Just like no one addressed Hitler as "Der Fuehrer" and no one addressed Roosevelt as "The President". Read the clue people. And look at the blank.

And Hitler was known as Der Fuehrer but the clue just gave Fuehrer, the answer is simply Duce

I belive il or der means The? as in il duce and der fuhrer. Obama is 'the' president.

Nov 27, 2016
The duce you say!
+2
level 45
Jul 27, 2017
No it shouldn't. Then the Fuhrer and der Fuhrer need to be accepted. If you know il duce you can guess duce.

Good Quiz. Got 15 out of 20. Hope i can get out of this rutt. 15 out of 20...on the last six (including this one) quizzes... no less...no more. Oh well.

It depends, I believe, on the relativity in question.

19/20 I couldn't recall Queen Victoria's husband. Should have gotten it. It took a while to get John Adam's wife after trying to think of who his boss was...

I read it as Elizabeth I and was trying to remember the king of Spain in the Victorian era.
+1
level 56
Mar 18, 2016
That's bizarre considering Elizabeth I never married nor did she live during the Victorian era.

Vlad the Impaler is actually supposed to be the man the story of Dracula is based upon. Interesting, huh?

I don't want to say it but... Istanbul was Constantinople, now it's Istanbul, not Constantinople.

Who said it's Constantinople now? The term is older name to newer name which fits for both sides.
+1
level 49
Jan 29, 2016
It's a running joke on this site that if any quiz has any reference at all to Constantinople being renamed Istanbul, someone has to post They Might Be Giants lyrics...

It's sad how many people don't know that the HMS Endeavour was Cook's ship. But then again, I live in Australia.

Why in God's name are you comparing Shakespeare to Thatcher? Because they're British? Give the man a break.

level 76
Jan 28, 2016
Shakespeare is not being compared to Thatcher, they just both happen to have nicknames.
+1
level 48
Jan 29, 2016
Bard just mean poet. For it to be Shakespeare's nickname it would have to be 'bard of Avon'.

He's commonly known as "The Bard" which is what the quiz is asking for. This isn't complicated.

Comparing Genghis Khan to Napoleon is absolutely baffling. France was a 1,000 years old when Napoleon rose to power.

Both are famous conquerors who led their nation's greatest series of military victories. Hardly baffling.

why isn't zedong accepted for 'mao'?

The same reason that John isn't accepted for Kennedy. Zedong is his first name.

Nixon is to Johnson . . . well, Nixon was Ike's VP and Johnson was JFK's VP, so couldn't the answer be Eisenhower is to Kennedy?
+1
level 64
Mar 21, 2018
I mean, if you think of Nixon and Johnson as Vice Presidents before you think of them as Presidents....
+1
level 77
Mar 21, 2018
I had the same thought as Pitzikat. It made sense because it compares administration to administration--VP to VP, President to President. I eventually got to Truman but that's only after I retyped Kennedy a few times.
