3. The Great Pyramid of Giza is the oldest of the original list of Seven Wonders of the Ancient World, and the only one remaining in existence. Which Egyptian pharaoh was it built for?

From Quiz Wonders - Ancient and Modern

Answer: Khufu

The Great Pyramid is the oldest and largest of the three main pyramids at the Giza necropolis on the outskirts of Cairo. The pyramid was built to serve as the tomb of Khufu, the second pharaoh of the Fourth Dynasty, who reigned between 2589 and 2566 BC, and is believed to have been built over a 10-20 year period, with completion around the year 2560 BC. When finished, the Great Pyramid was the tallest man-made structure in the world for nearly 4,000 years, until surpassed by the spire of Lincoln Cathedral in 1311 AD. As originally built, the pyramid was covered with white limestone to form a casing. An earthquake in 1303 AD caused many of these stones to come loose, which were then taken by Sultan An-Nasir Nasir-ad-Din al-Hasan to construct a number of mosques and fortresses in Cairo. A few of the original casing stones remain around the base of the pyramid, but what is seen today is the inner core of the structure.

The dates are easily remembered with this rhyme: "1665 No one left alive, 1666 London burnt like sticks".

19. Who lived at Blair House, across Pennsylvania Avenue from the White House, from 1948 to 1952?

From Quiz Home, Sweet Home (or not)

Answer: U.S. President Harry S Truman and his family

The Trumans moved into Blair House while the White House was undergoing a complete restoration. The house, which was built in 1810 for James Lowell, the first Surgeon General of the United States, takes its name from the Blair family, which owned the house from 1830 until the 1940s. In 1942, it became the property of the U.S. government, which enlarged it to include four other houses in the same block, and it is now used to accommodate visiting heads of state. Interesting trivia: It was over dinner in Blair House on April 18, 1861 that Montgomery Blair, Postmaster General in the Lincoln administration and one of Lincoln's most trusted advisors, sounded out Robert E. Lee on the possibility of his taking command of the Union forces in the impending civil war. Lee, who was at that time an officer in the Federal Army, told Blair that he could not bear arms against his home state of Virginia, which would be on the opposing side in any conflict with the Union, and three days later resigned his commission in the U.S. Army to take up command of the CSA troops.

29. Although their existence has not been definitively proven, the Hanging Gardens of Babylon are accepted as one of the Seven Wonders of the Ancient World. In which modern day country are they believed to have been located?

From Quiz Wonders - Ancient and Modern

Answer: Iraq

Of the list of Seven Wonders of the Ancient World, the Hanging Gardens of Babylon is the only one for which there is neither documentary or archaeological proof in existence, as there are no contemporary Babylonian texts that mention them, and nothing has been found in the archaeological investigations of Babylon itself. As a result, one of the theories that has been put forward is that the descriptions given in later Greek and Roman writings represent a romantic ideal of "eastern gardens", rather than an actual place. The most famous legend of the existence of an actual construction is that the Babylonian King, Nebuchadnezzar II, had a series of hanging gardens constructed at a palace in Babylon for his wife, Queen Amytis, who missed the green hills and valleys of her homeland of Medes.
