Plays like my Presidential First Names quiz now. For some reason I aced this quiz before when you had to enter all the numbers and this morning missed several. Probably because I didn't get enough sleep last night.

I like it better this way. It's not really easier, just less typing. I was going to add the Anglo-Saxon kings, but they are numerous and difficult to spell! And if you like challenging history quizzes, there are a lot coming up. Just don't complain if you don't know the answers. :) Of course, if you really want a challenge, try naming the popes!

British* Monarchy Anne was the first monarch who was a British Monarch, I know. But before that they were the Royal family of England, and after James I, Scotland (he was James VI).

The Edward that ruled 1901-1910 wasn't the 8th monarch of that name; his grandson, the one who abdicated, was. Also, he wasn't of the House of Windsor, he was of the House of Saxe-Coburg and Gotha. His son, George VI, changed the name to Windsor in 1917. Edward had then been dead for seven years, and the namechange was of course not retroactive.

You just made the same mistake! Edward VII's son who changed the family name was George V not VI.

You can fill in the I when there has been a II. Queen Elizabeth was only so called until 63 years and 216 days ago, but then she became Queen Elizabeth I. When she was succeeded by the, as of today, longest reigning monarch in English history.

Uh, no, Queen Elizabeth I became Elizabeth the First when the second Queen Elizabeth was crowned in the 1950s. That didn't change when Elizabeth II succeeded Victoria as the longest reigning monarch.

I hate these multiple box fill-ins, and quiz answers where they ask "which King did such and such" and it just accepts the first name.

Kings and Queens - full name and number is my new quiz for pernickety full name-ists like myself.

Tragic Lady Jane Grey was only fifth in line but her ambitious father-in-law persuaded Edward, as he lay dying, to let her succeed him. As Edward didn't want the country ruled by a Catholic, he agreed, but Mary, who came to be called Bloody Mary, was declared the true heir. Jane and her husband, both teenagers, were executed.

Horrible Histories is a series of children's books by Terry Deary that was made into a brilliant comedy TV series. They do a song each episode and one was the Kings and Queens of Britain. You should look it up, it's great.

Surprisingly easy- most Kings were named Henry, William, George or Edward. That handles 26 of them already, and it's MUCH easier to remember the Queens since there were far fewer of them.

Technically, Edward VII was not a Windsor because his son George V changed the name to Windsor during WWI because Saxe-Coburg sounded too German.
