You all seem to like the word game, so here's another. Let's see how long we can keep them going.

This is a simple word association game. The associated words, though, must have something to do with history or historical fiction. For example, if I say "king," you say "queen." So, let's launch with a word associated with queen.

Eleanor

Does a name count?  I would think so since we used Eleanor.  All I can think of is Marie Antoinette
