Buckingham Palace = Where the Queen officially lives. Beckingham Palace = Nickname of the mansion the Beckhams live in. It's a bit of a play on words with Buckingham

Almost any time I don't know the answer to something, it's "The Game of Thrones." I guess I need to read those books.

I tried the first one, but it's too intense for me. I'm more of a Harry Potter and Regency romance kind of girl. I like happy endings.

You won't get any happy endings in Game of Thrones. :P

That depends. Does "seeing the character you've hated for so long finally get what's coming to them" count as a happy ending? You at least get that occasionally in GoT.

Who would be the answer for the little house on the prarie? I had thought up some other famous homes but didn't mention them if it wasn't obvious who the single resident was that would be the answer.

There's a section for families, so the answer for Little House on the Prairie would be the Ingalls family.

Couldn't Hampton Court Palace also be Cardinal Wolsey? It was originally his place.

I don't think he ever actually lived there as owner though. Didn't he gift it to the King to avoid offending him by having a fancier house?

Neither did Henry really. Unless you count a holiday home as the place you live.... I'd accept Wolesy

The Phantom also lives on Skull Island. In addition, a lot of famous monarchs lived at Hampton Court, so I am not sure why it is restricted to just Henry.
+1
level 33
Oct 27, 2016
Yea, many monarchs lived there. It was indeed one of Henry VIII's favorite palaces, he renovated it greatly and turned it into a grand palace. There are actually rivaling sides to the palace, one side is a grand Tudor Palace and the opposite side is rivaling the French palace of Versailles. William III also did many renovations to half of the palace trying to imitate the grand Versailles. But my point is, many other monarchs held court in the palace; Henry VIII, Mary I, Elizabeth I, Charles I was imprisoned there at one point, along with a few others.

Hampton Court was originally Cardinal Wolesy's house before he gave it to Henry just before his reassignment and death. Wolesy should at least be accepted or else you should have to accept every owner of every house. Every president, prime minister etc....

I did, but then it turned out there was also a French president that didn't appear. I know this is an American site, so I shouldn't complain too much about the quizzes being USA-centric, but this seems a bit illogical.

"British" and also "Britain" (not Great Britain) is commonly used for UK, by UK. Cf. also "Brexit"
