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.

The continent was still there, and 250 years ago was 1763, so the colonies were there.

was it the type of music that would be played at balls?

State refers in this case to the entire country and the political body that governs it. I know you guys use states in the way we use provinces or districts or counties.

No.

Yes.

did he use his music for political fraternization whit his country?


No. And no to war music.

This would be mean to most people as the person's musical achievements/records are obscure. So the clue, he was the ruler of a nation, yet he was not of their people.
