See if there is interest for this.

1. Each day I will post 10 questions, at random times of the day.
2. Each Quiz runs exactly 24 hours.
3. The first person that has all 10 questions right, wins. Or if no one has all questions right, the best one wins.
4. You can only post answers ONCE for the same quiz.

1. Ides of March
2. Agamemnon
3. Tutankhamen (or king Tut)
4. Claudius
5. Anne Boleyn and Catherine Howard
6. Sissy
7. Edward II, about whom Marlowe wrote a tragedy once thought to be Shakespeare's (I was tempted to ask our rain man to Google that one, but I was afraid of the purists' reaction)
8. Richard III (but there was no Louey, only Huey and Duey, i.e. Edward V and Richard)
9. Sarajevo

Bonus question:
Rosamund Clifford, the "fair Rosamond" of medieval ballads. I think that teehee answers it, so I give the laurel wreath to Secret Squirrel and he can share the leaves with the rest.

You're right, jstk.dn, I should have procclaimed the winner, but I always have difficulty saying "and the winner is..." I like it to be a team work as it in fact is. And I'm not sure about the rules. The original ones said the winner is the person with most correct answers, and now it seems to be the person who supplies the last correct answer. If the first is the case, then you are the winner, and if not, Joshua wins. As you invented this quiz, I leave the verdict to you.

I think one of the people that successfully climbed Mt. Everest was the sherpa named Tensing.

I'm confused about Seamen as he doesn't really look like a porn star...

And as for your question about the lake I only know the Dutch word for it (stuwmeer).

And as for your bonus question, you're Top-5 of what exactly?
