    I looked at her Wikipedia page, because I was curious about her last name, and when during the calendar year she died.

    Last name: Gotha

    Died in January. I thought she lived to see 3 POTUS assasinated. Nope, missed McKinley by 8 months.

    She's actually usually considered a Hanoverian, even though as a woman she could not hold the crown of that German kingdom, but it's debatable: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/House_...d,_and_Hanover

    On the Dope, someone mentioned "Don't call me Shirley", linking to the scene, saying,"If I need to explain it to you, you're in the wrong forum." I instinctively thought,"It's a place on the internet where people write messages to each other, but that's not important right now."
