Yeah, Langobards and Longobards would be nice type-ins. Though admittedly I'm biased since I failed that question because the German word is “Langobarden” and I translated it to Langobards.

Even for a History teacher this one was difficult. 19/20 . Maybe the clue for Livingstone could be better IDK.

Kicking myself for not remembering him. Had a French exchange student tell me how to pronounce his name properly. A French name, spoken by someone from France, is beautiful. A French name, spoken by someone from the US, is a catastrophe.

All this time I thought it was 95 feces that Luther nailed to the door of the church... theses... that makes more sense.

Then there's the high school student who reported that Luther nailed 95 theocrats to the church door because they fed him a Diet of Worms.

Louis XVII was never really king of France. Only the royalists considered that the imprisoned son of Louis XVI was the legitimate king from his father's beheading (in january 1793) until his death (which must have occured in 1795). Of course his uncle chose the number Louis XVIII, but he was only the 17th Louis ;).
