What nationality was Ludwig van Beethoven?

German. Beethoven was born in Bonn, then the capital of the Electorate of Cologne and part of the Holy Roman Empire. He moved to Vienna in his early 20s. His grandfather was of Flemish origin, thus “van” in his family name (not German “von”).

Try with ants?

In the last four thousand years, no new animals have been domesticated.

We are stuck with goats,cows,horses,dogs,cats,chickens, donkeys and maybe few more.

According to tradition, how many people were killed in the great fire of London in 1666?

6. The death toll is traditionally thought to have been small, as only six verified deaths were recorded. This reasoning has recently been challenged on the grounds that the deaths of poor and middle-class people were not recorded.

Doggy Islands

The Canary Islands are not named after a canary. The name comes after dogs (Canis Lupus in Latin).
