Cool quiz. I got all the English monarchs, most of the French, half the Russians, but I didn't even get half the Popes. I had absolutely no idea about them, just guessed the famous ones.

I typed "Gregorius", but that's not counted as "Gregory"... I'm pretty sure popes themselves would like to be called by their Latin names rather than their English ones.

Yes, I was surprised that most of the names were changed to the English version, but Ivan wasn't changed to John. Isn't it the Russian version of John?

Technically, yes, as much as Hans, Sean, or Giovanni. But some variants are common enough into English that they've become separate names. I assume something like Janez or Gjoni would get its own box.

On the other hand, Jean has been translated for the French kings, although I suppose its English use is fairly minimal.

Eddie, Georgie, George not Ed, Liz the Second's now our head.

I was extremely sure of a Pio XII who was a pope and has places named after him in Spain, couldn't imagine how his name is supposed to be spelled the English way. And after trying Anne, I gave up on guessing female names. Bad move!

Nov 28, 2017
There was only one Charlemagne while a couple of his descendants had the name Carloman. Not sure why there names weren't Charlemagne, I tried to find an answer online but was unable. I think it might have something to do with holding Charlemagne to such reverence that it may have been considered in poor taste to the French monarchy.

Carloman I was Charlemagne's brother, they reigned together between 768 and 771 then Carloman died. Carloman II reigned between 879 and 884.
