The US political system has been a role model for many other countries. And the Presidential institution has pretty much been created by the United States. The modern usage of the word President, referring to a single person as a Head of a State came from the United States Constitution of 1787, which created the Office of President of the United States.

And while a country’s President usually concerns only citizens of this country, when we talk about the world superpowers like the US, the UK, Germany and, possibly, China, most people know their leaders.

But who will be able to name all US Presidents in order, with ruling dates? Bet not every American citizen, for sure.
