I came across an interesting list of people the other day and thought it would make a great Connections round - kudos to anyone who gets the Connection as it's not easy. As a twist, there is an Odd One Out (OOO) to identify who is very closely related to the others but differs in one respect.

1. 17th/18th century European ruler who more than doubled the size of his empire during his 42 year reign.
2. Probably the most famous Mexican artist known for her self-portraits complete with monobrows.
3. Early 19th Century poet who lived fast and died young.
4. 19th Century British scientist best known for work on fingerprints and eugenics.
5. Controversial late pop star.
6. He supposedly banned Christmas.
7. Italian-born she was the most powerful woman in Europe for 40 years in the mid 16th century.
8. The most famous artist of the Dutch Golden Age.
9. what's the connection?

Kahlo, Cromwell and Rembrandt are correct. Keats is a perfectly valid answer but not the one I'm looking for...

On further research there are two controversial late pop stars who share the connection so I'll take either...

Michael Jackson or Elvis Presley would have done and yes, the connection is that they all owned pet monkeys. Well done Feey - I didn't know any of them owned pet monkeys.
