Can you accept just "Anne"? I understand if not.

level 77
Mar 31, 2015
I had never heard the six fingers thing, so I typed in the name of every English queen including Anne but didn't get the answer so I assumed there was some other fictional queen that people were confused about being real.

level 64
May 13, 2015
Two of Henry VIII's wives were named Anne, and there were other queens with that name as well.

Jun 14, 2015
yeah I realize that but since I was just taking shots in the dark I didn't bother being more specific.
+2
level 67
Apr 1, 2016
Exactly the same happened for me. I think, for the purposes of this quiz (not a history quiz), specificity is not that essential. Anne should be accepted.
+2
level 35
Apr 2, 2016
No, she is always known as Anne Boleyn, not just Anne, and since Henry VIII also had a wife called Anne of Cleves, and there was a separate British monacrch named Anne, only the full 'Anne Boleyn' should be accepted
+2
level 77
Aug 22, 2018
Whether or not she was known as Anne Boleyn was her name not Anne? And is the common convention when naming monarchs to use last names?
+3
level 75
Apr 1, 2016
Just "Queen Anne" (in the context of British history) means the one who was queen in her own right (i.e. not as the wife of a king) in the early 18th century.

Apr 1, 2016
One year later... took it again and I thought. I swear this was Anne Boleyn after "Anne" didn't work. Fortunately, this time I actually tried Boleyn and got it!

Good catch there, FCBarcelona. Only the most astute among us would know that the catch with the Viking question is that Vikings actually had horns. They just wore knit hats with 2 holes in them, not horned-helmets.

level 69
Apr 12, 2016
That's a nice conspiracy theory, but The Origin of Species is long out of copyright, so anyone can publish it if they want to, even the select few who have seen this fabled lost last chapter. Anyway, even if Darwin had reneged on his ideas all that would prove was that he was wrong to think he was wrong - all the work of proving that he was actually right was done long after he was dead.

Wrong, The way that science works is that even if a theory is widely accepted as rigorous and logical by the scientific community it can be negated by a deathbed change of heart. The science becomes null and void.

Fun quiz as always, and I do love how much I learn with these because there are always several questions which answers I'd actually always thought to be true. You know, these kind of things you hear idly but never quite bother to check. The falling apple thing, ofr instance, is one I'd heard several times, including by one of my teachers, so I always sort of took it for granted. The burning bras too - again, sort of heard it around but never studied that time period enough to actually learn or verify that it was true. (I always thought it was a very stupid thing to do though considering how bloody expensive the things are so I'm glad :-D)
