Is it absolutely essential that we say "St. Peter" rather than just Peter?

William died in Rouen, in Normandie. So did Jeanne d'Arc. Dangerous microclimate !

This makes me think a "The Places They Finally Went" quiz could work. Except it's a list of names and the answer is the place they all died.

Well, if we follow the same principles for all the clues, either Constantine is born Moesia and Tesla is born in Austria, or Tesla is born in Croatia and Constantine is born in Serbia...

Croatia was a part of Austria-Hungary. Serbia was not a part of Moesia. Understand?

I love it when people are so sure about something they know almost nothing about. When Tesla lived in Smiljan, there really was a part of Austria-Hungary called Croatia. Yet, Smiljan was not inside Croatia, it was inside another subdivision called Military Frontier, a borderland mostly inhabited by Serbs and Croats that had certain benefits for defending the Empire from the Ottomans. So, once again, if Tesla is born in Croatia, Constantine is born in Serbia. Understand?

Fun quiz. I'd include Manchester for Mark Twain as he said how much he'd like to spend his last days there so the transition to death would be barely noticeable.

Kobe Bryant is a seriously obscure choice in a list of otherwise well-known people.

Yes. Agreed. He and Edward VIII are well adrift of the others in terms of contribution to society.

Had no idea this had been made! Honored to be linked and have a few answers used. Difficulty level definitely hard, I knew less than half even given the few from my own quiz.

Obviously, I love the concept, I hope to see more. Thanks for linking to mine.
