Fun fact No.2:
Letter C was derived from letter G, but to be more precise, from the Phoenician letter gimel. As the Latin alphabet developed in ancient Rome, G and C became disambiguated by adding a bar to the bottom end of the C.
When Latin entered the British Isles, C was ripe for many interpretations and was imbued with the sounds of Old English, Welsh, and other Celtic languages. As loanwords like clique flowed into English from Norman French, the uses of the letter further expanded. The fickle nature of this letter did not please everyone. As American English grew in the 1700s, Benjamin Franklin campaigned to remove C from the alphabet altogether, though his efforts did not gain much traction.
