I just saw the most ridiculously difficult Final Jeopardy! question ever.

Category: English Royalty

Answer: One of the three years in which three different kings reigned.

Question: What is 1066? || What is 1936? || What is 1483?

I mean, honestly, who could possibly know that? The only one vaguely possible is 1066, because evidently two kings had reigned prior to the Norman invasion. But that's a pretty trivial detail, given that nobody remembers (well at least I don't) who William conquered, let alone who had died to put that guy into his brief stint as HRH.

Turns out the winner was the dumb woman who wagered the least. Weird.
