Very nice quiz! I only wish Milica got named rather than just being called Lazar's wife. I think she is famous enough for that.

Nice quiz! I only have one remark: the Serbian medieval history does not start and end with the Nemanjići dynasty. You should add some more questions about Vlastimirovići, Vojislavljevići, Mrnjavčevići, Balšići, Crnojevići, Lazarevići...
