    So, an American resident alien (?) or analogous status?

    Will rephrase #2: Were you the female lead in "Wuthering Heights"?
    3 was Joan Osborne ("One of Us")

    DQ: Died AFTER 1800?

    IQ2: Are you the Beehive State Senator?
    IQ3: Were you the OTHER infamous "birther"?

    Dunno about the female lead of WH. Not Orrin Hatch; blanking on the blonde female birther's name.

    O.

    1. real
    2. female
    3. dead
    4. died before 1900
    5. American resident alien, as far as I can determine, but possibly was naturalized
    6. died after 1800

    I wouldn't get too hung up on #5; not particularly relevant as to why she's famous.

    Dunno the first two; J. Robert Oppenheimer (if that's who you're thinking of) wasn't accused of spying, IIRC, but his moral criticism of nuclear weapons led to him losing his security clearance.

    I think royalty is inherently political, so in light of the earlier answer to question 9, take another DQ, if you wish.
