Ok. Maybe a little anoraky but here goes. Think about it. It's doable.

Lord Lucan, who disappeared in 1974 at the age of 40 suspected of murdering his children's nanny, was the great-great-great-great-great-great-great
-great-nephew of which Irish military hero?

That's eight greats. Work it out.

(PS. I didn't Google it. I'd bookmarked the relevant site years ago)

Patrick Sarsfield?

On the naval subject, what was the percentage agreed between Hitler and Chamberlin in the Anglo-German Naval Agreement which limited the amount of german ships to a proportion of the British
