I added this one personally since I like these nonsensical made up questions.
But I screwed up and put the answer as true. Somehow no one noticed for 500 takes. Then I noticed an fixed it. But, you commented just before it got fixed!
I guess they thought it couldn't be made up
(FYI, no one has ever given birth while serving as Pope either.)
Because I'm French
The last one got me laughing
Originally the region has been named Terre d'Angoulême (Angoulême's Land) or La Nouvelle-Angoulême (The New Angoulême). Then in 1624, the Dutch took the region and renamed it New Amsterdam.
The story of La Nouvelle Angoulême has been forgotten for a long time, but in 1949, a young French historian living in New York (Jacques Habert) published a book about that story called « When New York was called Angoulême ».
But since the question might create confusion, I changed it. Let's see if Quizmaster agrees.
I think there are enough places in the world that have not been founded by the French to ask a similar question that will be less ambiguous and leave no doubt about the proper answer, rather that keeping one of the very few exceptions that are most definitely arguable.
