Interesting quiz. I tried "French Indo-China" for Ho Chi Minh without luck - would you accept that?

Stalin was born in Georgia long before the Soviet Union existed! Plus, Christ was born in Judaea, not some 'country' called the Roman Empire. You seem to have some difficulty differentiating between a country and an empire in several of these.

I really like this quiz. I think some of the birth countries are inaccurate though- e.g Mobutu Sese Seku was not born in Belgium, he was born in the Belgian Congo. Ho Chi Minh wasn't born in France, he was born in French Indo-China. Great quiz idea though, thanks.
