fun quiz, though I think I would have gotten a few more if I'd had more time. I missed Cesar I assume because I used the common spelling Cesar instead of Caesar. Though I realize he wasn't the only Cesar.

Good quiz thanks Chris. I had no idea Napoleon was scared of cats, so that's my bit of new knowledge for the day.

Thanks Wombat... yup, the idea was to provide some obscure facts about these people, be lighthearted etc.

Benjens: Thanks! Well done!

Caesar was absolutely bi-sexual. Pretty common in those days. It's strange cos I'd already increased the time to 5mins and that's what it says when I look. For some reason Jetpunk doesn't seem to be updating my changes.
