Nice quiz! Just a couple of things – for me, Henry VIII came up when I typed Henry VII. And also, King John is just John, no "I" as there's never been a John II.

I wonder if it might be worth yellow-boxing this quiz, as it's all too easy just to type in all the kings you can think of...

Thanks for the feedback! I always yellow-box quizzes, but can often forget. I will check up on that pesky Henry and will get rid of the I for John, not sure why I put it.

I always remember the American Revolution because King GEORGE was fighting GEORGE Washington.
