"Jefferson" doesn't work for Thomas Jefferson. This is an interesting quiz but I'd like to see the data. For example, there's no way Mozart was more significant than Beethoven or Bach.

What, exactly, was Henry VIII famous for besides casting wives aside and seceding from the Catholic Church? And, why Marx but not Engels. Or Stalin but not Lenin, Trotsky or Gorbachev? And LBJ had a profound effect on the USA.
