I kept typing USA, UK, and Russia for the three allied power leaders, wondering why it wouldn't take any of them. I tried every variation of spelling I could think of even to "The United States of America." Never considered you were asking for men, not countries. Sigh.

I did the same thing. I missed all three in that category because it didn't dawn on me that it was asking for people.

Yeah same but finally I saw that it was leaders (although pretty embarrassing to type Trueman before Roosevelt stupid me lol)

Same, I put in Russia, then the UK, then USA and then I pressed “give up” , hey, atleast I got the Russian Empire and British Empire for biggest empire in the process :)

Have to say, proud of this one. Wasn't that fussed about the Spanish possessions, then suddenly thought, "Oh, Guam and Puerto Rico!", leaving only the Chinese inventions incomplete.

A very nice quiz. I would certainly add tea, silk and, yes, china to the list of important Chinese inventions. Also, you should specify that you are interested in the ships Columbus used on the first of his four voyages (of course these are by far the most famous ones, but out of respect for precision, we should acknowledge tat Columbus actually commanded many more ships in his service of the Spanish crown).

Tea comes from a plant and silk comes from a worm. I wouldn't call them inventions, more discoveries.
+1
Level 67
Aug 29, 2019
What? you don't discover these, they have to be processed (if not, all those poor silkworms wouldnt be cooked). That way you could say most things werent invented, because the material used for it allready excisted.

Not really the same. The Yuan dynasty doesn't include the western possession of the Mongols.

Does Lady Jane Grey count as an English Queen?

Level 42
May 27, 2021
generally not, and neither does Matilda - who probably has a greater right. She was named as Henry's heir and contested the title for far longer with significantly greater support than Jane had.

Level 76
Nov 17, 2021
Jane is included in other JetPunk quizzes.

Level 73
Nov 29, 2021
I remembered Jane and Matilda and was annoyed that they weren't accepted, but somehow totally forgot Victoria...
+3
Level 74
Nov 18, 2021
I second this emotion -- Jane reigned even if only for 9 days.
+2
Level 56
Nov 29, 2021
Yes, Jane was definitely monarch, and it would be harsh to not include Matilda, as she reigned in her own right
+1
Level 67
Nov 30, 2021
I mean Matilda was never officially declared queen. Instead she was title as "Lady of the English."

Can someone explain how Rome (pre-filled in) is an Italian city with more people than Rome in 1500 AD?
+1
Level 58

I think it's modern day population.

Its probably just for comparison.

Santa Clara should be accepted as a type in for Niña, since that was the actual name of the ship (Niña was her nickname).

Clearly I am in a minority when it comes to Greek Columns. I laughed out loud when I read that question and thought ‘who the **** knows anything about Greek columns?’ Then I saw the percentage who got each answer. Either I missed out learning them, and I’m not sure when

I would ever have come across it, or a lot of people on here have some even more obscure knowledge that I realised. Or people cheat, I guess, lol.

My father studied architecture and I always heard about styles of different columns growing up. I have never had any use for the information, but I can still remember it.

Level 31
Nov 29, 2021
We were taught these in elementary school at some point. Not sure why they were so all-fired important in comparison with other things, but there they were, maybe as part of learning about Greek mythology. As the scores indicate, they have been (at least at some point in the past) pretty widely included as part of general education.

I remember the history classes about ancient Greece in like 5th grade but nothing about columns. And even if you did, how the heck do you remember that?
+1

Took A Level Classics due to an interest in mythology. All I remember now is the bloody columns. And the plays.

In Slovakia for example, it is part of the History class when you study the topic of Ancient Greece.

Wow, Rome had more people than Rome in 1500 AD? Impressive.

I guess it's just a visualisation of where Rome places. Of course it's kind of obvious.

Philadelphia is not a US capital city. Harrisburg is the capital of Pennsylvania, not Philadelphia. If you mean original capitals of the country, you may want to reword the clue.
+1
Level 78
Apr 4, 2022
The 3 blanks make it pretty clear that it's not asking for state capitals.
+1
Level 78

Although a "Groups of Things" quiz where the only question is US state capitals would be pretty funny.

Perhaps accept some misspellings?

I object Catherine wasn't an emperor she was an empress.Anyway that's my excuse for not getting her.

I may have misunderstood (or just missed something) but what's the criteria for the three U.S. capital cities? These three cities just seem like three random choices to me...

They are former national capital cities.
