Correct response: What is Romanov?
More information about Final Jeopardy:
The Romanovs were the last imperial family of Russia, consisting of Tsar Nicholas II, his wife Tsarina Alexandra, and their five children Olga, Tatiana, Maria, Anastasia, and Alexei. They had been killed in the Russian Revolution of 1918 and were deemed martyrs by the church, though not without controversy, as some felt that it was the ineffective rule of Nicholas II that had brought the revolution in the first place.
Since Alex Trebek’s diagnosis of stage 4 pancreatic cancer, 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, $239.35 has been raised.)
