About This Quiz

History is full of great achievers: Kings and queens who protected their kingdoms and helped them prosper; scientists who uncovered the secrets of the universe; explorers and pioneers who risked their lives breaching the boundaries of what we thought was possible; writers and artists who spoke beautiful and terrifying truths about the reality of our nature. We know them by their great deeds, but as we celebrate their achievements in the public field, we don't want to forget the really important question: what sort of a significant other would they have been? Would they be affectionate? Reliable? Generous? Jealous? What was the 18th century equivalent of 'Netflix and chill,' and would they have been into it?

In some cases, we already know the answer (pro tip: do not date Henry VIII.) But we have enough information to put together a pretty good answer for others, too, from political heroes and villains to aviators to composers. We know how much time they spent at work, how they saw the world, what their values were, and whether they kept up their correspondences with the people in their lives. So as long as you know yourself well, you can figure out who would have been your partner back in the days of yore. Tell us about yourself, and we'll figure out who your historical date would be!
