I don't subscribe to the "possession is 9/10ths of the law" philosophy; if you steal my car, it's still *my* car – you just happened to steal it. Therefore, I like how this clue is worded.

Thanks for your thanks on the French version - you'll see that Hagia Sophia and Yekaterinburg didn't survive in translation, because the French names Sainte-Sophie and Iekaterinbourg don't start with H or Y!!!

Welcome! Do you speak French or are you using a translator? (if the latter, it isn't even noticeable, which is good!)

How do the same % of people get the 'Spanish and Portuguese peninsula' and 'Palace of the Italian President' questions? I would have thought the peninsula would be far more well known than some italian palace?

I am AMAZED that many people know the Q answer. I have never even heard of it. I just assumed there was an obvious type in that people would know it by that i'd missed. I'm genuinely staggered as many people know it as know a city in Switzerland that starts with Z!!

This befuddles me too, as the only type-in is Quirinal, along with some misspellings.

I didn't even have a guess for that one. No clue, whatsoever.

I had never previously heard of that palace but the Q was a bit of a clue - I started thinking of the hills of Rome and know one of them starts with a Q and that was it. It was a bit of a wild stab in the dark, but it paid off.

How many more years until there is absolutely no question that Ukraine no longer owns Crimea... It's a fait accompli, whether right or wrong it's already a reality that Russia owns it. If we keep going by this logic then most countries would belong to someone else.

One thing: The Sea of Marmara could also work, as it separates European Turkey and Asian Turkey.

Somehow randomly guessed Xanthi. Don't even know how the name came to mind, and I don't remember seeing it anywhere, but I just randomly typed it in, and voila!

Wales is hardly a fourth of the UK - neither in land area nor population - that's why.

Quite impressed that I got Yekaterinburg and Valletta, but then again I didn't get Jutland somehow... Very good quiz though!

Technically Wales is not one-fourth of the UK, as it doesn't cover a fourth of the UK's land area. Rather it is one of four regions of the UK.

I'm not a Russian partisan or bot (I take Ukraines side in that conflict generally,) but it's simply not reality that Ukraine owns Crimea, lol. One can argue Ukraine has the right to Crimea, but Ukraine has zero control over Crimea, Russia occupies it and Russia controls it, therefore Russia owns it
