Need to be a little less detailed with the answers:

The Korean War. How about Korea or Korean? The and War are irrelevant.

First King of Belgium. When he was crowned, he was crowned as Leopold not Leopold I because, at that time, nobody knew if there would be a Leopold II.

Greenland. Erik de Rode. How about the name by which most of the world knows him? Eric the Red.

Great quiz, but could I suggest you accept Hess and Adams. Luckily i knew John Adams, but the Rudolf Hess question flummoxed me as I was trying to think of other war criminals who could have been alive, despite me being correct the first time.

Still great quiz!

Henry had six wives but I'm guessing he "had" a lot more women than that.
