An Ancient Egyptian term (read in Hieroglyphs as 𓈖𓎡𓏏𓏴𓏛 𓇋𓄿𓂧𓏏𓏯𓅪𓏥) used in an insulting manner by characters in Assassin's Creed Origins, including Bayek of Siwa. The subtitles in AC Origins say that it means "piece of s**t;" however, it's actual meaning is "piece of misery." If you were to call someone a neket iadet in Ancient Egypt, you would likely get beaten up, or worse, never heard from again.
Bayek of Siwa: I have killed all of these neket iadet.

The historical pronunciation and an obsolete spelling of What (with the former Wh Digraph, excluding the words who and whom). The reason why it was pronounced like this was because of the fact that in Middle English, a swap of the Anglo-Saxon {hw} to {wh} occurred (it was occasionally spelt as quat), but the older Anglo-Saxon pronunciation stuck for centuries and didn't really die out until the 20th century in most English speaking areas. If a person were to pronounce what as "wat" in the 18th century or before, it would be seen as uneducated speech. However, this notion of thought faded out in the early 1800s. It is indeed the way that Hank Hill says what, something quite rare in the modern times.
An Example from Anglo-Saxon: Hwæt! We Gardena in geardagum, þeodcyninga, þrym gefrunon, hu ða æþelingas ellen fremedon.
An Example from Early Middle English: Auh lokeþ þurh hwat reisun. \
An Example from Hank Hill: I'll tell you hwat

Def 1: Archaic and true German-Based name of Germany, based on the German name (Deutschland).

Def 2: An incorrect name for the Netherlands.
Those who are easily tricked will fail to realize that the term "Dutchland" really refers to Germany, and not the Netherlands.

The era in which Queen Victoria was the reigning monarch of the United Kingdom; this Era lasted from June 20, 1837 to January 22, 1901, when the Edwardian Era began after Queen Victoria's passing.

The Victorian Era is typically seen by many as a time of humourlessness and strict moral codes, but it is also associated with manners, high society, monocles, top hats, corsets, the term "we are not amused," and an aversion towards split infinitives.
The game Assassin's Creed Syndicate takes place in the Victorian Era.

A term supposedly uttered by Queen Victoria (there's no evidence of this), this term is often linked with royalty to satirically point out their snobbishness. This meme can also be found online with pictures of a discontent Queen Elizabeth II as well.
"There is a tale of the unfortunate equerry who ventured during dinner at Windsor to tell a story with a spice of scandal or impropriety in it. ‘We are not amused,’ said the Queen when he had finished.”

A word that describes something that is outright bullshit or a load of rubbish, with excremental relating to fecal matter, the pure definition of shit. Something excremental is so untrue that it makes you slowly lose hope in humanity, results in immediate laughter, and makes you question whether or not you are hearing things.
Person 1: Hey, did you hear that a professor who has a Ph.D. in pseudoscience discovered that humans are descended from giant alien hawks from the 6th Dimension? That's means that humans are really multi-dimensional birds!
Person 2 (internal thoughts): I just can't describe how excremental that statement is...I mean, how could anyone be so hopelessly dumb?
Person 2: **Bursts out laughing uncontrollably.**

An obsolete variant of the letter s "ſ" that is often confused with an f (it also resembles ∫, a calculus symbol); It fell out of favour in the early 19th-Century for this very reason, as printers found that it was more practical to use a variant of s that would not be confused with f.

The long s still survives in German as the letter ß, which is a ligature of the letters ſ and s combined into ſs (ß). It can also be found in the Jägermeiſter (Jägermeister) logo.
"Hey, why does this word say 'ſuſpicious' in this old book? Shouldn't that be an s; I don't remember suspicious being spelt with f."

"That's just one of the ways that they wrote s back then; it's called the Long S."
