Here are the results from HistorySTM March Madness Round 2. The question for Round 2 was:

*Whose reputation has been most exaggerated by history?*

Once again some of these results surprised me. How, for example, has history exaggerated Copernicus’s reputation more than Hypatia’s? Or Darwin more than Dee? Oh well. Here are the results.

*Astronomia*

- Regiomontanus over Meitner by 8
- Ptolemy over al-Haytham by 12
- du Châtelet over Sacrobosco by 2

*Geometria*

- Newton over Euclid by 3
- Magnus over Vesalius by 2
- Pliny over Bassi by 13
- Darwin over Dee by 2

*Musica*

- Trismegistus over Curie by 3
- Pythagoras over Gilbert by 20
- W. Herschel over al-Nafis by 6
