Great quiz! I'm not an expert on Chinese history, but I think it's pretty cool. I had quite a bit of trouble with the names of the emperors since I've only learned about a few of them :P but I still think I know more than most Americans.

Why did you include questions about the Qing and the Ming Dynasties as "Ancient China" though? I'd definitely consider those to be more "modern" in the historical sense. Especially true with the Puyi question, since he only died a few decades ago.

Thanks!

I've just updated the title from Ancient to Imperial because interestingly, none of the questions were about the ancient era
