More information about Final Jeopardy:
Bonnie Prince Charlie was the grandson of King James II of England (King James VII of Scotland) who had been deposed in the Glorious Revolution of 1688. He attempted, in the Jacobite uprising of 1745, to reclaim the English throne for his father, but failed. The failure of the uprising essentially ended support and backing of the Stuart cause to regain the throne of England.
Since Alex Trebek’s diagnosis of stage 4 pancreatic cancer on Wednesday, many community members have been raising money. The Jeopardy! Fan Online Store is as well! All proceeds from any “Keep The Faith And We’ll Win” shirt sold will be donated to Alex Trebek’s preferred charity. (The de facto alumni association is currently inquiring with the show in order to determine Alex Trebek’s preferred charity; this will be updated when that has been determined. To date, $199.61 has been raised.)
