Looking to find out who won Jeopardy! tonight? Today’s Jeopardy! results will go up on this page late afternoon, with full stats early evening. They will be seen in the comments section at the bottom of this page.
“Un Capitano Moro” was a story in Giraldi Cinthio’s Hecatommithi from 1565. In the original story, the Moor is unnamed, but Desdemona is (Disdemona in the original). Obviously, in Shakespeare’s play, the famed Moor of Venice is given the titular name.
