Presidential Trivia Quiz

Updated on October 21, 2014

Do You Know Your Presidents?

I fancy myself a bit of a triviaholic. When I was growing up, my brother and I were very into presidential trivia and also very much into quizzes. When we were in our pre-teens and teens, we used to create quizzes in many different subject areas, but presidential trivia was our best topic. I have the questions in this lens and the answers will be in another lens.

Here are the Questions:

Q1) George W. Bush was the 6th President to graduate from Harvard. Name the other 5. (Hint: All graduated before "W" was born).

Q2) The two presidents with the most children (one had 15, but with two wives, the other had 10 with one wife) are related in some way (not in a familial way). Who are these two presidents and how are they related?

Q3) A lot of people know that James Buchanan was the only Bachelor president. Who was the only other Bachelor elected president (he wasn't a bachelor when he left the white house)? And what "first" did his wife accomplish in the marital history of First Ladies?

Q4) Eight presidents died in office (4 were assassinated). But which president died the soonest after retiring from the presidency?

Q5) Richard Nixon was the second Quaker president. Who was the first?

Q6) Theodore and Franklin Roosevelt were 7th cousins. What was the relationship (familial) between Theodore and Eleanor Roosevelt? And what presidents were 2nd cousins (hint: They don't have the same last names)?

Q7) What president survived the first assassination attempt on a president when two expertly primed pistols aimed from point blank range misfired?

Q8) What president was named "Leslie Lynch King" when he was born?

Q9) Which president, when faced with leaving his family destitute upon his imminent death, braved throat cancer to dictate his memoirs to Mark Twain? (The memoirs earned his family enough to support them at the time)

Q10) Which president met his wife when they were 6, when she beat up a boy who insulted him?
