Historical Pictures: A Quiz

So I'm kind of obsessed with historical pictures. (Shocking, right?) Ever since I found the "history" search category on Pinterest, wow I waste a lot of time on there! But I just can't help it! Historical pictures are just so fascinating! 

So, for today I've devised a quiz. These are early or childhood pictures of famous people throughout history. They're all people who did great things, whether good or questionable. 

Try and guess who they are. Post your guesses in the comments! I'll post the answers tomorrow!




It's one of those things where it's kind of hard to guess who some of them are, but once you know, you can totally see it in their faces! 

Who do you think these kids grew up to be?

Remember, Citadels of Fire is available for pre-order now! Check it out below if you haven't yet!


In a world where danger hides in plain sight and no one aspires to more than what they were born to, Inga must find the courage to break the oppressive chains she’s been bound with since birth. 

As a maid in the infamous Kremlin, life in 16th-century Russia is bleak and treacherous. That is, until Taras arrives. Convinced that his mother’s death when he was a boy was no mere accident, he returned from England to discover what really happened. While there, he gains favor from the Tsar later known as Ivan the Terrible, the most brutal and notorious ruler ever to sit upon the throne of Russia. Ivan allows him to take a servant, and to save Inga from a brutal boyar intent on raping her, Taras requests Inga to stay in his chambers. 

Up against the social confines of the time, the shadowy conspiracies that cloak their history, and the sexual politics of the Russian Imperial court, Inga and Taras must discover their past, plan for their future, and survive the brutality that permeates life within the four walls that tower over them all, or they may end up like so many citizens of ancient Russia: nothing but flesh and bone mortar for the stones of the Kremlin wall.

    1. Not Bill Cosby, but you're correct on D. Great job. He's entirely too cute for a French dictator.

  2. C looks a little like Judy Garland? I have no idea, really. I have a history board in Pin too. Ignites the imagination.
