    Admittedly, my questions were flawed due to improper wording.

    I leave the floor open.

    2- Referred to the Ligurians as Monoikos which bears the sense of a people either settled in a "single habitation" or of "living apart" from others.

    3- Army Group B

    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?

    1) The process for the Holy Child of La Guardia?
    2) Vespasian
    3) Paul von Lettow-Vorbeck

    You still have to answer my questions first!

    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.

    2 and 3 are correct, the first is not.

    Right, though remember this has less to do with Venice and more to do with Spain/Portugal
