Admittedly, my questions were flawed due to improper wording.
I leave the floor open.
Okay, so I'm going to make another questions:
1) Just after world war I, some italian poet was leading italian semi-militaristic unit to conquer some city and and annex it to Italy. What was the poet name, and what was this city?
2) Name 3 nations / countries (or commanders from these countries) that theirs soldiers ever in history entered to Moscow as conquerers.
3) What was the antique precursor of todays Ethiopia (and Erytrea) having territory somewhere in todays Ehtiopia (and Erytrea).
4) In which month and year and where last unit of German III Reich made capitulation (after official capitulation)?
1) Gabriele D'Annunzio and the city of Fiume/Rijeka
2) Mongols (13th century), Tatars of Crimea (1571), Poland-Lithuania (1610-2)
3) The Ethiopian Empire founded by the Solomonic dynasty
4) 4 September 1945
1) When the last Ottoman Turk resident in Venice left the city and which was his name?
2) Where the Principality of Monaco derives its name from?
3) When and where the last German unit surrendered after the end of World War I?
1) A public event in which heretics and apostates were condemned during the Spanish Inquisition. What is the name of this event?
2) I am a Roman Emperor who battled in campaigns in both Judea and Britain and gained most of my support from the middle eastern territories and the army. I began a dynasty which would last nearly 25 years, and by my ascension I ended a dynasty that ruled for over 80 years. Who am I?
3) With a force of 14,000, I held off a combined army that numbered over 300,000. While I fought on land, I actually was commanding forces under the navy's control. Who was I?
Isn't Lettow- Vorbeck the answer for your third question as well? 25 November 1918, German East-Africa, I would say. At least I'm not aware of any other German forces that gave up after the armistice of 11 November.
However I have no idea about your first question, despite having read some Venetian history last year.
this post has been dead for a while, lets try to revive it.
1. Confederate general Joshua Singleton Moseby later served as the US consul to what city?
2. Who commanded the Spanish squadron as it entered the 1898 battle of Manila Bay?

Ok - next batch all set in the Napoleonic Wars:
1. Who believed he had been made pregnant by an elephant?
2. Who was intended for the law but became a King?
3. How did the French verb "raguser" come into being?
4. Captain the Lord Cochrane was elevated to Knight Commander of the Order of Bath after which battle?
