I typed in "Black Death" but got nothing, because you require "The." Likewise with "Rome" and "Roman," because you require the wholly redundant "Empire." I could complain too about requiring "Lady," but that was just laziness on my part.

The clue's in the name. Roman Emperor Hadrian had the wall built to mark the northern edge of the Roman empire and to keep out the Scots, not the other way round.
