About This Quiz

THANK YOU, Mr. President. Or should we be saying your Majesty? If you travel all over the world through time and history, we've had numerous presidents, prime ministers, kings, queens, and emperors. Whatever you want to call them, they were all leader of their countries.

Back in history, it was common to hear titles that now sound out of date, such as emperor and pharaoh. Names like Hatshepsut and Tutankhamun might ring a bell when you think of ancient Egyptian pharaohs. When you think of emperors, you're probably remembering Augustus Caesar or Nero. Later on, kings and queens could be found all over the world, with some of the most famous hailing from Europe, such as King Henry VIII or Louis XIV. The United States would go on to adopt the term of president, while Canada kept a queen and added a prime minister. While Germany has a president, its government is run by a chancellor. 

All these titles apply to the leaders of the world, but can you pinpoint them to their exact country? Can you remember what country Winston Churchill represented? What about current Prime Minister Justin Trudeau? From Napoleon Bonaparte to Barack Obama, could you tell us the country if we give you three of its most prominent leaders? Let's find out!
