Thursday’s Quizzler is….​
Emperor Akbar once ruled over India. He was a wise and intelligent ruler, and he had in his court the Nine Gems, his nine advisors, who were each known for a particular skill. One of these Gems was Birbal, known for his wit and wisdom. The story below is one of the examples of his wit. Do you have it in you to find out the answer?

The King of a distant land had heard that Birbal was one of the wisest men in the East and so desired to meet Birbal. He sent Birbal an invitation to visit his country.
In due course, Birbal arrived in the distant kingdom. When he entered the palace he was flabbergasted to find not one but six kings seated there. All looked alike. All were dressed in kingly robes. Who was the real king?
The very next moment he got his answer. Confidently, he approached the king and bowed to him.

How did Birbal know who was the real king?

Answer:   The king, puzzled and shocked by this instant discovery asked Birbal, “But how did you identify me?”

Birbal explained: “The false kings were all looking at you, while you yourself looked straight ahead. Even in
regal robes, the common people will always look to their king for support.”

Overjoyed, the king embraced Birbal and showered him with gifts.

As part of a lesson the Middle Ages, a ninth-grade teacher spent a day teaching about medieval heraldry. To spice things up, he offered extra credit to any student who took the time to research his or her family history. The students’ enthusiasm made the lesson a success. From the information provided, can you determine the crest and motto belonging to the family of each student?

First Names: Fiona, Howard, Missy, Paul, Shannon
Last Names: Cole, Killman, Nathanson, Ruff, Zeigler
Crest: griffin, helmet, mastiff, rising sun, three stars
Motto: Ad Finem Fidelis, Ex Merito, In Veritate Victoria, Omnia Pro Bono, Te Ipsum Nosce
