Circumanswering of the day
Who led the British fleet at The Battle of Trafalgar? Was it:-
!) Marie Curie
2) Edgar Allan Poe
3) Lord Horatio Nelson

Tricky one ! Of Course, Pierre and Marie Curie famously enjoyed several holidays in the Mon Repose Guest House, and Pierre had his dirty postcards business on the front in Whitley bay, which is a bay - not unlike Trafalgar. Edgar Allan Poe was around at that time, but whether his preoccupation with narcolepsy and recreational drugs would have left time for naval engagements is doubtful. Therefore the answer is Lord Horatio Nelson.
