Wow, this is really difficult to complete in 15 minutes. Great quiz though! I would like to point out however, that Shah Jahan built the Taj Mahal in the 17th century (around that time) and the first queen of egypt is generally accepted to be queen hatshepsut. Also, I'm not able to see the North Korea question. Thanks anyway!
