Don't fail me now, Google! :lol:

1. Which international event was started by Pope Urban II’s sermon at Clermont in 1095? 
    On November 27, 1095, Pope Urban II makes perhaps the most influential speech of the Middle Ages, giving rise to the Crusades by calling all Christians in Europe to war against Muslims in order to reclaim the Holy Land.

2. Which 12th-century historian wrote the first detailed account of King Arthur?
    In the popular 12th-century book “History of the Kings of Britain,” Geoffrey of Monmouth wrote the first life story of Arthur, describing his magic sword Caliburn (later known as Excalibur), his trusted knight Lancelot, Queen Guinevere and the wizard Merlin.

3. Of this group, who is a Titan? – Zeus, Rhea, Hades, Hercules, Gaea.
    Rhea.

4. What was the name of the sea serpent that was supposed to devour Andromeda as an offering to save her parents' kingdom?
    Cetus.

5. Who defeated Minotaur with bare hands?
    Theseus.

6. What are the five underworld rivers?
    Styx, Lethe, Acheron, Phlegethon, Cocytus.

7. If you cut off its head, two more grow back. Which animal does this describe?
    Hydra.

8. When were windmills built in Europe first?
    The earliest certain reference to a windmill in Europe (assumed to have been of the vertical type) dates from 1185, in the former village of Weedley in Yorkshire which was located at the southern tip of the Wold overlooking the Humber Estuary. A number of earlier, but less certainly dated, twelfth-century European sources referring to windmills have also been found.

9. In medieval Europe between 4th and 12th century which numeral system was used and which device was used to do calculations?
    From the 4th to 12th Centuries, all trade and calculation was made using the clumsy and inefficient Roman numeral system, and with an abacus based on Greek and Roman models.

10. Who selected the then Roman prince, Charles V?
    The Prince-electors of the Holy Roman Empire, or Electors for short, were the members of the electoral college that elected the Holy Roman Emperor.
    The seven Prince-electors called to elect Maximilian's successor were:
    Albert of Brandenburg, elector of Mainz
    Richard von Greiffenklau zu Vollrads, elector of Trier
    Hermann of Wied, elector of Cologne
    Louis II of Hungary, king of Bohemia
    Louis V, Elector Palatine, elector of the Electoral Palatinate
    Frederick III, Elector of Saxony, elector of Electorate of Saxony

7. Hydra

8. In 1180, the first windmill in Europe was constructed by crusaders returned from Near East in Normandy.
