Okay, Jean Monet is misspelled. Should be Jean Monnet.

And "founding father(s)" are only Monnet and Robert Schuman. The idea for European Community (at the time) came from them. The other "founding fathers" just happened to be head of state or government of the six founding countries.

Otherwise, great quiz. Could be updated to take into account the changes.

Maybe you could change the wording of the treaty questions. I didn't even bother trying, because I thought a full date was needed, when in fact only the year would have done the trick.
