Trivia Question: What author of The Jungle Book was known as “The Bard of Empire”?
Answer: Rudyard Kipling
Kipling was born in Bombay when India was under the control of Great Britain. As such, he grew up surrounded by imperialism and developed some rather radical views on the benefits of imperialism for those it dominated. Many of his stories were tinged by his upbringing in one way or another.
Founder of IHP, husband to a great wife (my best friend), and dad to 5 wonderful kids. Big fan of history, quizzes, and just about anything trivia related. I also enjoy reading biographies, non-fiction, and fiction (fantasy novels). My other hobby is board games and in my opinion there is nothing better than a family board game night!
