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!

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 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.

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.

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.
