5 Sep 1939:
Which country declared its neutrality in World War II?
Quel pays déclara sa neutralité dans la Deuxième Guerre Mondiale?

7 Sep 1930:
Birth of the predecessor of the predecessor [sic] of the current King of the Belgians; what was his name?
Naissance du prédécesseur du prédécesseur [sic] de l’actuel Roi des Belges; quel est son nom?
