I couldn't help but laugh when I read in this thread comments like that Spain was a highly "centralized kingdom". If only! You gu...

Not sure if this is a wasted question or not, as I'm not 100% confident on where native speakers would most likely be born between 1570-1727, but...

Born in Spain in the 17th century?

Was this person ever a pope, a doge of Venice, or a captain regent of San Marino?

Re: XX Questions – Game CCXCIII

Clarifying question; The leader of the UK today would not be Rishi Sunak but King Charles III (is that correct as the way you answered the "leader" questions)?
