CLUE: This African Capital renamed an area Mexico Square to honor Mexico’s WWII-era support of its sovereignty during Italian occupation
ANSWER: Addis Ababa
About Today’s Final Jeopardy – Tuesday, 7 November 2023
In Addis Ababa, Ethiopia’s capital, an area has been named Mexico Square as a tribute to Mexico’s opposition to the Italian occupation of Ethiopia in the years leading up to World War II. The invasion, part of Mussolini’s expansionist ambitions, began in 1935 and prompted a wave of international criticism, of which Mexico was a vocal part.
President Lázaro Cárdenas of Mexico, reflecting his country’s anti-imperialist ethos and commitment to the sovereignty of nations, was adamant in denouncing Italy’s actions. He championed the cause of Ethiopian independence, pressing for punitive measures against Italy and standing by Ethiopia’s right to self-governance.
Ethiopia’s decision to christen a square in Mexico’s name was an expression of gratitude for Mexico’s principled stand during a time when Ethiopia faced aggression and subjugation. This renaming serves not just as a nod to historical events, but as a lasting symbol of the enduring bonds and mutual respect between the two nations.

Final Jeopardy Video – Tuesday, 7 November 2023
Watch all the videos from today’s Jeopardy episode below, including highlights, behind the scenes outtakes and full episodes.
Final Jeopardy is the final round of the popular American television game show Jeopardy!, in which participants test their knowledge in numerous areas by answering questions. In Final Jeopardy, participants are given a single clue and must wager a percentage of their existing earnings based on their confidence in their ability to successfully respond.
Each contestant surreptitiously writes down their wager during the commercial break. The Final Jeopardy clue is presented when the programme resumes, and participants have 30 seconds to write down their solution in the form of a question (e.g., “What is…?”). When the timer runs out, the host, reveals each contestant’s response and wager in ascending order of their pre-Final Jeopardy scores. The scores of contestants are adjusted based on whether their response is correct or incorrect, as well as the amount wagered. At the end of the round, the contestant with the highest score is proclaimed the winner.
