So, nobody try to guess? But the kings of Rome was only 7!  8-0

Well, I'll drop it: he was Numa Pompilio, second king of Rome  (715 a.C. - 673 a.C.) after Romolo.

Ancient historician Tito Livio reported the rumor that Numa Pompilio meets the nynph Egeria in the woods and asked her tips about how to rule Rome. Tito Livio doesn't admit that nynphs really exist, however Numa's kingdom was one of the most peaceful and illuminate.

This story inspired many painting, for example this by Felice Giani:




Now, everyone can take the next turn...

...unless you won't try to guess who was the king that faced a ghost...  :-D

What was the last of the imperial dynasties of China?

Qing, or Quing, I believe. At least, I think so. It ended somewhere around 1910, at any rate. The last Emperor was still a boy, at the time of his abdication. I think he lived on for many years as a caretaker in the Forbidden City. Is this correct?

Right, then. Here we are, a question!

We are now looking for a famed war hero. Or rather, war heroine. She served with distinction in the U.S. Marines, and was duly decorated. She was honoured with an equestrian statue at the U.S.M.C. national museum, amongst other things.

Who are we looking for?
