So I've been planning on making this thread for quite awhile now, since 2012 as I recall, but as always, I procrastinated. Anywho, no, this is not a copy of Name That Song, I was taught this game in "The Real World" and played it there.

So here's how it works, someone, me to start, thinks of a dead person who must be famous. To avoid as much spam as possible, gives off certain details about him/her from the start. After that, everyone will try to guess who said dead guy is whilst asking 'yes' or 'no' questions about him. It would be preffered, so as to avoid spam, that unless you have a rather unique question, or are guessing the identity of the dead guy, that you ask more than one question per post.

E.G.
Person 1: I'm thinking of a dead male, caucasion with black hair
Person 2: did he did within the last 5 years and was a singer?
Person 1: Yes to both.
Person 2: Micheal Jackson.
Person 1: Yes. Chose your dead guy.

I'm going to start off with a dead caucasion male, black hair, was known for being on television and without further questioning I will go into no more details on what area of television.

Ask and guess away.

A European king. I'll try making this easy since I'm leaving on the weekend.

I was thinking Henry VIII for a while. Then you went and said he died before 1500.

Did he belong to the House of York?

House of Wessex?
House of Knýtlinga?
House of Normandy?
House of Blois?
House of Tudor?

If you say no to all of these, then this guy doesn't exist.

House of Wessex?


I'm seeing Wessex in the Wiki I'm guessing he belongs there. Not 100% sure.

[quote]Was he a Saxon?[quote]

He was an Anglo-Saxon, if that's related to your question.

No. Not from what it looks like.

Hint: He is one of my ancestors(it doesn't help I know just wanted to throw that out).

Actual hint: He was not a liked king, neither in this time or his.
