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.

No, not the Bohemian duke.

Clues so far: Born after 1500, Russian, has German blood.

Never ruled him not being a Tsar, or being a Tsar. (Clue!)

Is his crown a symbol for something such as a company? E.G. Is it like a car company symbol?

I'm confused. What's going on right now? What do you mean? What is this? What have I done to diserve this?

current dead guy is a german romonov (russian tsar with german blood).

Is it Peter the Great (shut up, I am horrible at history, and dates, and names)

And blk, if you follow my train of thought, I could easy come to the conclusion of the doctor.

Yes, Peter the Great.

Based on clues: Born after 1500, before 1700. Romanovs trace their lineage to noblemen fleeing from German controlled territories. Ruled Europe somewhat, since the Russian realm spread into Asia. Was a Russian Tsar, yet was not a Russian Tsar, since the Empire was formed halfway during his reign.

Yes, Peter the Great.
Really, wow, I actually guessed as that is the only name I could think off who had any relation to Europeans (took heavy influence from them, I think his wife was German, although I think I may be wrong, as the only wife Wikipedia mentions is Catherine I, who was lithuanian).

AND I DID NOT USE WIKIPEDIA TO ANSWER THIS (/paranoia)

So, I have to come up with a dead guy now? Someone I know but that you might have trouble identifying? I will see what I can think of during school.

Doesn't matter. The German blood was already in him.

Eudoxia Lopukhina has her own Wiki page too.
