1. You misspelled Liguria. 2. Goidelic is another version of the word Gaelic and should therefore be accepted. All in all, interesting quiz.

I was going to ask why Greenland isn't the biggest island in Europe, but thought I should Google it first. Apparently it's considered part of North America. Who knew? I like these quizzes, by the way, thanks for making them.

"Gallia" is what the Romans called it. "Gaul" is a loan word from French which does not come from the same root as Latin "Gallia", which would have become something like "Jaille" according to the regular development of Modern French from Vulgar Latin. The word "Gaul" comes to us through French from early Germanic "walha", which is an old Germanic term for basically anyone not Germanic. You also see that word in Wales, Wallonia, and Wallachia.

Of all the things you could have used about Greece, you chose "experiencing financial problems". What an interesting and misleading generalisation.

It's still the (kind of) truth. Greece has the 3rd lowest GDP per capita in the EU as of last year. It shouldn't surprise anybody when a socialist country run by nut cases gets their hands on a currency with a low interest rate meaning they can give HUGE incentives to their citizens without a real way to actually pay back for the money they took.
