Great quiz, but I'm on the force of the Spelling & Typo Police, - medieval, currency, motto, Three, and boulevard. Also, your clue for Napoleon made it sound to me as if you were asking where he died. Waterloo was the site of his military defeat, but he died in exile on the island of Saint Helena.

I can always remember the author of The Three Musketeers because in school the teacher asked if anyone knew who wrote the book, and the person who answered pronounced his surname as "dumb-ass".

Even though it followed the Three Musketeers clue, by "their" I still assumed you meant the French. It is a country quiz after all.

The French motto is "Liberty, Equality, Fraternity" (Liberté, Equalité, Fraternité). I tried every permutation of that in both English and French with and without the accents.

It's the least answered question in the quiz by a margin of almost 2:1. Maybe other folks read it the same way I did.

Saint Martin, not Saont Martin. Also, as already said, Champs-Élysées is an avenue (and called one), not a boulevard.

The question makes you think France has a border on Saint Martin with the UK. Maybe move the question down so that its beneath the "Pays-Bas" question
