Friday Trivia

The answer to yesterday's question is:
Naruhito. He is the son of the current Emperor, Akihito, who was the son of Emperor Hirohito (of WWII fame)--this making Naruhito the grandson of Hirohito.

Today's question is:
After causing trouble all over Europe, Napoleon was deposed and exiled on an island (I've been to his house there, it was rather nice). He escaped from this exile, made his way back to France, and started causing trouble again during what became known as The Hundred Days--until he was defeated by the Duke of Wellington at Waterloo. He was exiled again, this time to a more isolated island. What was the first island to which Napoleon was exiled, and what was the second?

Elba (near Corsica)

St. Helena (somewhere off the coast of Africa)

I know that the second island was St. Helena, and I think the first island was Elba.

LOL! I asked the 11-year-old son ... he says: St. Helena and Elba. I think he is smarter than a 5th grader ;) .
