Looking to find out who won Jeopardy! tonight? Today’s Jeopardy! results and will go up on this page late afternoon, with full stats early to late evening. They will be seen in the comments section at the bottom of this page.
Beethoven’s famous work of classical music, “Für Elise”, was actually not published until more than 40 years after his death. The identity of the Elise for whom the piece was dedicated is still debated with most people suggesting Therese Malfatti, Elisabeth Rockel, or even Juliane Katharine Elisabet Barensfeld.
