What a cool quiz! Had to have a few guesses on St Augustine. Knew he was from around there somewhere. Never heard of Mario. I kind just got it from the French surname.

Mario is a hockey player, one of the most famous of all times :).Canada's always a good guess when it comes to hockey.

Had no idea he was a hockey player. Tried France because of his name and when that didn't work the next logical guess was Canada.

A rare case: his name means "the best" and he was the best.

"The best" would re-translate into "Lemeilleur". Le mieux is adverbial, and used in phrases like "le plus tôt le mieux." (the sooner the better).

You might want to accept Numidia for St. Augustine, as that is what it was called at the time. Great quiz!!

You're basically saying that Confucius' answer should be Zhou Dynasty, and the Medici guy should be Florence ect.

Color me totally surprised about St Augustine! I would never have guessed. I tried every single European country, and was dubitatively starting on Middle East when I ran out of time. I'm not sure what time period he was from, but I would probably have gone trough South America before even trying Maghreb countries. Well well. Shows what I know. Great quiz!

This is not right. St Augustine is most definitely not from Algeria. The country came into being almost 2,000 years after St Augustine died. Same for Lorenzo de Medici. He was from Florence, Italy did not exist until 1861, about 300 years after he died. Same for Mohammed, he was alive during the 600s, Saudi Arabia was founded as a country in the 20th century...

"Guess the modern day country, even if it didn't exist when the person was alive" This is what the quizmaster put at the top of the quiz. So, there ya go.

Quizmaster has apparently changed his name to "serval". Sorry, but it's your fault if you don't follow the directions. Make your own quiz if you're so in a twist about it.

It does matter. He who makes the quiz sets the rules. The way the rules are set here means that entering the modern-day country is a correct answer. No way to get around this.

The quiz is wrong because serval can't read instructions (or can't be bothered to read them)? I think not.

When you say "from" do you mean where they were born? If that is the case Jean-Paul Marat was born in Switzerland. He lived most of his life in France

quizmaster, can you please take PABLO ESCOBAR from the list of Colombians???? I have to remind you he was a murderer and does not deserve to be in the same place as those you included in the list. As one of my fellow players wrote before, how about SOFIA VERGARA!

Trotsky should be Ukraine as he was born in Ukraine which was at the time a part of the Russian Empire and later the Soviet Union. He had no association with modern Russia
