No Bueno
Sorry, but that's a fail. Maybe you are too young to remember some of these people, or perhaps you need to look at historical albums more! These are people who shaped culture, art, war and leadership for decades and centuries after their death. They should be known on sight!
 
Not Great
You didn't utterly fail this one and you knew a few, but you didn't do great identifying these famous people from history and got less than half right. These are people who shaped culture, art, war and leadership for decades and centuries after their death. They should be known on sight! Better look at some historical albums.

You didn't ace the test, for that you would have needed a few more correct answers, but you did really well. Check out the answers and see where you went wrong.
