Key V says, "The owner of the Crossbow, the person who read the Wood Engraving, the person with Key V, the one who drank six glasses of wine and the owner of the Whip are five separate people"|
These four were given colored flags and numbered badges as they entered my realm. You must use these clues to match the people with the descriptions given and determine the order in which each entered.
The Queen who hails from Iberia, has the yellow & red flag
The "Iron Lady" entered first and has the flag colored blue, white & red
The "Dragon Lady" does not have Badge II and entered before the one with the yellow & red flag
The one who led a failed rebellion against the Romans entered before the one with Badge III
The one whose Badge number is the same as the order of her entrance does not have the flag colored blue, white & red
The one with Badge II has the blue flag
One person has a flag colored blue, red & yellow
The one with Badge I entered third
From left to right, in what order did these women enter (1st - 4th)? You will give Key V to the person who entered LAST.
Margaret Hilda Thatcher, Isabella of Castile, Empress Dowager Cixi, Boudicca of Iceni

If you have answered all previous questions correctly you will now have your list of five suspects. To identify the culprit you must complete this puzzle. |
Match each suspect with the weapon owned, item read and glasses of wine drunk. Each of the five keys you have given to the suspects includes clues that will aid you in deciphering the puzzle (the five keys have given a total of nine separate clues, remember to match the key with the name of the person to which it belongs)
WEAPON OWNED - Crossbow, Dagger, Gun, Hammer, Whip
ITEM READ - Ancient Scroll, Bound Book, Newspaper, Stone Tablet, Wood Engraving
GLASSES OF WINE - Two, Three, Four, Five, Six
Remember how Shakespeare was murdered, there is only one weapon here that could have been used. Whoever owns that weapon killed Shakespeare. Who was it?
Write the person's three-part name exactly as it appears in this quiz. (e.g. Gaius Julius Caesar or Peter the Great)
Now you should be certain which of the five suspects is the murderer but did the culprit have help? It could have been one, some, all or none of the remaining suspects. Answer these questions to reach your answer. |
To get you started, I will tell you that the person who had four glasses of wine was too drunk to commit a crime because he or she is a total lightweight. You can exclude that person from your list.
Firstly, if the murderer did have help, the accomplice(s) would have to be physically capable of moving around freely. Walking, running and jumping are necessary.
Look at your remaining suspects and recall what you know about these historical figures. Does this requirement exclude any of the three suspects (anyone who is not physically able)?
