I guess the line becomes a bit blurry with some people, but I'd consider Mussolini to have been executed rather than assassinated. Nice quiz though.

I would say the same for Maximilian of Mexico. If after a regime change, you're getting sentenced by court martial and then a firing squad kills you, that's not assassination.

Claudius' wife was called Agrippina. Agrippa was a male name. The female descendants of Marcus Vipsanius Agrippa were called by the feminine version Agrippina, first his daughter whom we call Agrippina the Elder and then his granddaughter whom we call Agrippina the Younger, who is the one who later married Claudius.
