Minor points: The queen is known as Elizabeth I now that here have been two Elizabeths ruling Britain; also accept "Franz Josef"? (Franz Josef Glacier was named by a German, after the emperor Franz Joseph)

Why should Habsburg work? That doesn't pinpoint it within a row of archdukes.

Mustafa Kemal should be accepted. Attaturk is a title (father of Turks). I also think that just "Bruce" or "the Bruce" are also acceptable.

Please correct me if I am wrong, but I am pretty sure Harod the Great ruled UNDERNEATH the Roman empire. Wasn't he just a puppet king? Thanks for the quiz!

Puppet king is still a king (: Officially, he was an "ally and friend of the people of Rome", which in practice means that he was indeed a vassal, obliged to pay taxes and obey the Roman government whenever it wanted to interfere, and liable to be replaced if he ceased to please, but technically he was a sovereign monarch.

Interesting how Kublai Khan, who arguably ruled over a larger portion of humanity than any other person in history, is the least known.

??? To me she's been one of the best humanitarians of the century so far. A breath of fresh air in this World where petty nationalism and xenophobia seem to be gaining the upper hand.

I would sugest to accept Mikhail Gorbachev from just Mikhail because of how many ways his name is spelled. For example in Finnish we spell it Gorbatšov and I had no idea how it is spelled in English.
