Lovely quiz. ^_^ But Mrs Gandhi was Indian prime minister, not president. However, Pratibha Patil was Indian president 2007-2012.

The only three I missed were because of spelling errors. I tried about 10 different ways to spell Boudica (Buddica, Budicca, boudicca), same for Hatshepsut (Hutsepshut, Hasepsut, Hatsepsut) and Sacagawea (Sacajawea should also be accepted)
