Find Newgate Gaol, and win!
-Norway is indeed the country of the midnight sun - correct
-Death will all men destroy - correct
-Earth is almost correct, but it's the wrong word
-I cannot find any mention that Azrael bears a spear. This particular angel is not mentioned in the Bible, as far as I can tell from a quick google search, but he is mentioned in Paradise Lost, amongst others. He is not generally known
-Ephesus is correct, but not love
-Napoleon (The Corsican) was indeed vanquished at Waterloo in 1815
-Lincoln is correct. Could you explain? I don't get that one myself
