This one was tough for me! I think this is the first time I have seen pictures of a couple of these women. This is definitely not an easy 100%.

Marie is allowed for Queen Marie Antoinette, Elizabeth and Victoria allowed for the English Queens so perhaps Grace could be accepted Princess Grace?

Fair point, especially since she was wellknown by her first name as "princess Grace".

Good quiz. The four in the column on the right got me. I recognised two of the faces but couldn't remember the names.

Yikes. This would be a very different quiz if a woman wrote it. … I should probably shut up, put up, and write such quiz :-)

I once read that Frida Kahlo spent more time looking at herself than any other artist........ I'd heard that but still didn't get her on this quiz.

I think most artists spend more time looking at themselves than at other artists ;)

But seriously, how would you even measure something like that?

I keep forgetting the English name for the Great Royal Wife of Akhenaten whose name I also keep forgetting. I can only seem to remember their names in my native language...

Glad you didn't want the full names especially The Current Divine Mother Empress Dowager Ci-Xi Duan-You Kang-Yi Zhao-Yu Zhuang-Cheng Shou-Gong Qin-Xian Chong-Xi of the Great Qing Empire. Still didn't guess her shortened name though.

How do you pronounce that L with the teeny line through it? My grandfather is from a town with one of those in the name. He died long before I was born, so I never could ask him.

Thank you QM for featuring these women. I made that "Influential Women in history. part II" quiz but I understand it was sadly too difficult to be featured.

Yeah, I know Woolf but had never seen a picture of her. (Well I didn't get Nefertiti either but that's just cause my brain ain't working)

I don't really get why "Marie" is accepted for Marie-Antoinette. I was trying to type Marie Curie, hadn't even scrolled yet, and "Marie" just went away so I had to scroll to see where it went... So yeah that robbed me of the satisfaction of knowing another answer :(
