I always liked trivia games and I thought it could be fun to have our own here. So, the principle is really simple. A question is posted, the first person that can answer it right post another one and so on.

Question 1 : Which king of France has been decapitated ?

Cariaoke
Jul 14th, 2003, 02:52 PM
Louis XVI?

So, we will have to wait for Josh's verdict.

You are right about the language but I was looking for a real location (country/region or town) where that language is still being spoken today. ;)

Wrong answer. The queen actually resides in The Hague as well. The original palace of the house of Orange is in The Hague. Prince Willem-Alexander also lives in The Hague.

Check the website of The Hague and you might be able to guess the answer.

Correct! Of course, because of its size, it's often referred to as a city, but it's not. It's 'Gemeente Den Haag', not 'Stad Den Haag'. A 'gemeente' can't be capital 'city'.
