We had to have a question about a movie portrayal? There are so many other interesting parts of her life that could have been explored...

Such as...When did she become Queen? How long was her reign? What title did she give herself as head of the Church of England? What conspiracy was she implicated in that saw her imprisoned in the Tower of London? What monarch did she keep prisoner for almost 20 years? Where was her childhood home? Just to name a few more interesting tidbits.

Thanks for the suggestions. But I don't think that any can be used. I try to avoid putting number questions on quizzes for the obvious reason that one can just type numbers until the correct answer is randomly landed upon. The prisoner question is a good one, but we already have a Mary on the quiz so typing Mary would get you both answers. The other questions are too difficult, in my opinion. I don't know the answers and I've read at least a couple books about Tudor history.

the thing is that it's not actually in her reign, nor adjacent to it...

I think I did better at this than some of the other reign/life quizzes. Probably because the Tudors are done to death in British schools.

Since you've added the moniker VIII to Henry, maybe do the same for James? (he was both VI and I - VI of Scotland, then, from 1603, I of England and Ireland as well)

Seconded. It's a bit of a slap in the face to just say James, like he was your mate at the local. it should be "King James VI and I". I know we who are subjects of their Majesties have a different view on this to Americans, but it's just right to do it. Mary doesn't need it as she was the first of her name (also the Bloody in the clue is a distinction), but since you have with Henry, you really should with James.

"Grey, I suspect, Majesty," "I think you'll find it was orange, Lord Melchett," "Grey is more USUAL, ma'am," *pause* "Who's Queen?" "Well, Majesty, there were these magnificent orange elephants..."

Nice one. But can't we make people work a bit harder re Anne Boleyn, i.e. surname required?

Yeah. I don't know much about Elizabeth, but guessing "henry" for the father pretty well gives away the mother if first name is the only requirement. I mean, there's only 3 names to guess at that point.

why moan about the questions? if you want better questions, write a quiz... and James is ok, he was james VI of Scotland at the time, but he was the first King James of England, so just like Mary, didnt need a number

Aren't there pretty much only two things popes historically do to people? Canonize or excommunicate usually fills in the answer.
