William, william, henry stephen, henry, richard, John. OI!
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.
Kings and Queens - full name and number is my new quiz for pernickety full name-ists like myself.
I can remember King John because he was played by some kind of a panther thing with a pet snake wearing a short, short cape in Robin Hood by Disney. Sir Hiss.
Edward the 8th was never crowned, and Elizabeth 2 became queen in 1952, but wasnt crowned until 1953
So this is incorrect
Therefore the title of the quiz is a little misleading.
