The quiz should accept "Frysians" as alternative for "Frisians" (I'm not entirely sure, but I think Frisians is actually the incorrect spelling of the term.)

Frisian is definitely the correct spelling in English (I'm 1/2 Frisian!), but I've added it anyway. Thank you for the comment and for taking the quiz :)

I don't believe that "Frysians" could be the correct spelling, as there is no "Y" in Dutch, only the lange "IJ".
