Who was the first president of the United States? All of us say “George Washington.” But it’s wrong at least technically. Washington was not inaugurated until April 30, 1789. And yet, the United States continually had functioning governments from as early as September 5, 1774 and operated as a confederated nation from as early as July 4, 1776. During that nearly fifteen year interval we got many presidents but we never heard about them. So here following brief biographies profile these "forgotten presidentsBefore “George Washington.”

Courtesy of the brilliant BBC comedy panel game television quiz show QI (hosted by Blackadder's Lord Melchett). From the C series (2005), and the "China" episode (but US Presidents one was nothing to do with China as it appeared in the General Ignorance section of the episode):

We're currently on K series of the show, and we've still got series L,M,N,O,P,Q,R,S,T,U,V,W,X,Y and Z to go, so the last series will probably be made around the year 2029.
