In this teaser, you are to take the first letter from the people's surnames to discover the name of this famous 20th century German theologian.

1. He made a name for himself fighting the Irish at Munster; later he was introduced at court and became a favourite of Queen Elizabeth I. Known for his wit and womanizing, he was in and out of Elizabeth's favour.

2. Three world religions honour this man as their ancient patriarch and a model of faith in one God. In Judaism, the 12 tribes of Israel trace their lineage to this person through his son Isaac and grandson Jacob.

3. He ruled as emperor of Rome, from 117-138 A.D. In Britain, he ordered the construction of a famous wall near the modern border of England and Scotland.

4. My nickname relates to a mysterious creature in Loch Ness, Scotland.

5. I was a cantankerous talking horse who would speak only to my owner, Wilbur Post, and played dumb when anyone else was present.

6. This person played the leading role in Superman in 1978, thereby making him a star.

If you want Abraham's surname, the best bet would be Israel, the name given to him by God. Why doesn't the whole of the Middle East inherit this name? Because Ishmael was pushed out of the family.
