More information about Final Jeopardy:
Prince Philip, the husband of Queen Elizabeth II and the Duke of Edinburgh, was born in Greece who was 6th in line to that country’s throne prior to becoming a British citizen in 1947 (and marrying Elizabeth) later that year. He is also a grandnephew of Alexandra, the wife of Nicholas II, whose family was executed in July 1918 during the Russian Revolution. Originally thought to be cremated, the bodies were found in an unmarked grave in Yekaterinburg; their DNA was then compared to that of Prince Philip in order to confirm ancestry. It matched.
