Re: XX Questions, Game LXXI

[...] Anyone who would declare Ishmael dead here would be plainly wrong. This is precisely the reason why I think that talking about Schoediger's state of a fictional character is irrelevant.

Re: XX Questions, Game LXXI

But doesn't the answer 'yes' to the questions 'dead?' imply that the character was real and has died? In a sense, all fictional characters are not alive, strictly speaking. But are they dead? Generations of real characters from the future aren't alive yet. Does that mean that they are already dead,...

Real?
Since he's dead... However, I don't remember what our convention is for the cases where the fictional character dies in their universe.

Isabel la Católica, Reina de Castilla
Si, Senior!

Finalising the Reconquista, financing Columbus, and establishing the Spanish Inquisition are to her account.
What's the connection to Margaret of Denmark. Religion?
Unification of Scandinavia = the Reconquista

Re: Twenty Questions - Game 70

Hmmm, not a lot of options left I think. - The 3 Andorran queens qualify, but seem very obscure. - Margaret I of Denmark/Norway/Sweden. - Several of the Italian rulers qualify. - Claudine of Monaco. - Beatrice of Portugal, unless the dispute disqualifies her. - Isabella I of Castille. - Joanna of C...

Did she die before 1st Jan 1234?

If yes, Queen Boadicea/Boudicca?
An impressive guess. But no to both.

If we're just randomly starting to guess already:

Marie Antoinette?
Indeed, I'd suggest maybe narrowing down the period.

Not Marie Antoinette

Maria Theresia of Austria (1717-1780) Archduchess of Austria and Queen of Hungary (to name only her most important titles), married to Franz I Stephan the Emperor of the HRE and changed the House of Habsburg to the House of Habsburg-Lothringia?
Unfortunately, not her.

Re: Twenty Questions - Game 70

A queen/empress/princess who:
- was from the Northern Hemisphere;
- died more than 100 years ago,
- was a native speaker of a language other than English;
- and who wasn't Catherine the Great.

12 to go.

Was she ever queen/empress/princess regnant of any monarchy, or reign with a male title such as king? This question does not refer to regents of a regency.
queen/empress/princess/etc.
yes
