RULES!

1. Only yes/no questions may be asked.
2. If the answer is unclear, question master must clarify why.
3. One guess per person does not count against the total, but additional guesses by the same person do. After all 20 questions are up, three total guesses are allowed.
4. Please choose persons real or fictional that are not horribly obscure. No repeats.
5. Whoever guesses correctly takes over from the previous question master. If they do not want to do it, they may choose who to pass the duty onto or just give it to the first volunteer.
6. If the question master remains undefeated three times in a row, on the third time they must either pass it to a person of their choice, or the first volunteer takes over.

GO!

Would you expect a decently sized library to have multiple books that are primarily about this person?

1. Not likely to be the subject of multiple books that would be found in a decent library
2. Real person
3. Not Entertainer
4. Not American
5. Male
6. European
7. Dead

So it's a real dead European man who wasn't an entertainer. Not many books have been written about him.

So he is presumably not a military leader, not a major political figure, and not a mass murderer or other major criminal - because all of those sorts of people get books written about them. But he's not an actor or a popular musical artist either.

Technically we still don't know if our dead European male is real or not.

Between real and fictional, what's the third option?

We know he is not fictional, isn't that good enough?
