I think Leonardo da Vinci belongs in an 'L'-quiz, as he is usually referred to as 'Leonardo'.
Here in France, we always refer to him as "de Gaulle" (and not only "Gaulle", that would be grammatically incorrect) and I'm pretty sure he appears in the "D" pages of our dictionaries.
PS : He comes from Gaule though ;)
PPS: I like to answer to comments that are 7 years old haha
That's Descartes before de horse.
Apparently Stone Age is verboten now too. The Flintstones, Rubbles and Slates filed a class action suit.
Of course this is also ignoring that Western Europe is less than ten percent of the world. China actually did have a bad period in the 300s to 400s but rebounded quicker than Western Europe and the Tang Dynasty right after that is considered a cultural high point. India had tons of development, and both regions were far richer and more left more records of this period. Also the mid dark ages were the Golden Age of the Mayans.
I also think it should be spelled Da Vinky
