Isn't the Fatimid Caliphate "more important" as the Rashidun? I guess it's just a point of view...

Well.... the Fatimid Caliphate was fairly important in Africa but it never really included Arabia and Mesopotamia like the other three did.

Do you think they referred to him as "William" or did they call him Wilhelm?

As far as I know, it was William. Does seem a bit more English, but they both did come from the same line after all.

Would be nice if other spellings of "Mark Antony" were accepted. Marcus Antonius, commonly known in English as Mark or Marc Antony, was a Roman politician and general who played a critical role in the transformation of the Roman Republic from an oligarchy into the autocratic Roman Empire.

Fun but challenging!

Good quiz, a couple of comments though, the Battle of Passchendaele is the more common name for the Third Battle of Ypres, Marcus Antonius should be accepted for Mark Anthony, his first name is the same as Lepidus' so it is wrong to accept Marcus for one and Mark for the other and just being very picky, Henry VIII's children are in a very arbitrary order, it should be either Mary, Elizabeth Edward or Edward Mary Elizabeth (by date of birth or order of reign)
