NOTES: NAMING – Many people with last names have just those accepted. Popes, Kings, Queens, etc who have a name with a Roman Numeral are accepted in the format “Charles XI” for example – you do NOT need the Roman numeral if it’s a “I” – otherwise type the Roman number out..do NOT use 2, 3, etc. Many alternate or simplified names are accepted – i.e. “Alexander of Europe” would allow just “alexander”.

    The ’50 missed’ is not working correctly; it looks like the same bug that happened with another quiz after it was updated to the new format. Also, I can’t be sure, but I have a feeling the ‘occupations’ counter is not working.

    Do you really have to type the whole string of names for Montesquieu? Just “Montesquieu” should give credit. “Charles Montesquieu” and “Charles de Montesquieu” don’t work either.
