Correct response: What is Tripoli, Libya?
More information about Final Jeopardy:
Tripoli, the capital of Libya, shares its name with the ancient Eastern Mediterranean port city of Tripoli, now in northern Lebanon. The name derives from the Greek for “three cities”.
Sources which use the term “Bride of the Mediterranean” to refer to the Libyan Tripoli include State Magazine in 2010 and TIME Magazine in 2001. The term “Bride of the Mediterranean”, depending on the translation of the original “Arūsat al-Baḥr”, could also mean “Mermaid of the Mediterranean” or “Bride of the Sea”. (And remember, Alexandria, Egypt, another city which lays claim to that nickname, isn’t the capital of Egypt!)
