Staff member
What is notable about H. Fitzroy Somerset?

1. He was an accomplished Olympic high diver and won the bronze medal in 1976. (Ransac's guess)
2. He fought with Napoleon at the battle of Waterloo. (EricBess' guess)
3. He was one of the first members of the British Parliament. (fuzzy's guess)
4. He was the first British governor in India. (Sleepy's guess)
5. He was a British Duke who invented the game of badminton. (correct answer)
6. He was a founding father of Somerset, New Jersey, established by charter on May 22, 1688. (sageridder's guess)
