Jump to last reply

1- Where are Marie-Antoinette and hubbie King Louis XVI buried now? Where were they buried until 1815 when their alleged bodies were reburied in this famous place.

2- Westminster Abbey - burial place of not only monarchs but all kinds of famous Brits, espeically writers, artists, etc. Name 3 non-royals enterred now in Westminster Abbey>

3- Where is Shakespeare buried?

4- Where would you find the tomb of Winston Churchill?

5- Where is Charlemagne's grave - allegedly at least?

6- The Pantheon in Paris is a veritable pantheon of graves of famous French folk - name at least three person buried here.

7- Who is the only women buried in the Pantehon based on her own merits?

8- In Paris' Montparnasse Cemetery John-Paul Sartre is buried along his long-time companion - who is she?

9- Paris' Pere Lachaise Cemetery has graves of many famous folk, including some who were not even French. Whose grave in Pere Lachaise was a favorite of women's afections (ironically!) and they would put on red lipstick and leave their kiss marks on his tomb, which as a result a few years back was put behind a glass wall to preserve its dignity?

10 - His grave in Pere Lachaise Cemetery attracts legions of women hoping to marry within a year by doing what to the bronze life-like copy of his body leaving a certain body area bright and shiny!

11- This American's grave in Pere Lachaise draws scores of devotees of his music who leave maudlin messages (graffiti) and things like whisky bottles on it - a guard now is supposed to patrol the grave site to keep a modium of decorum yet folks still come there to party down.

12- Where is Karl-Marx buried?

13 - Where will you be buried? (If not dead already!)

Good luck and the winner wins (plus S & H of course!
