Which precious metal did the Vikings prefer above all others? Do we even have his name – Genghis Khan – right? Who employed the composite bow with greater effectiveness: the Arabs or the Turks? Why did Pope Urban II go to central France in 1095? Where did Richard the Lion-Heart get his nickname? Why on earth did Hitler code-name his invasion of Russia for a German emperor who drowned?

What great poet spent years gathering food and wine for the Spanish Armada? What was the price for King Francis' freedom, in 1526? How long did it take to learn how to use the longbow? What was the largest of the cannon brought by the Ottoman Turks to the siege of Constantinople Who took over when Genghis Khan died (after a fall from his horse)?
