British Kings and Queens are counted from the Norman Invasion onwards. Roman Emperors are counted from Julius Caesar to the splitting of the Empire into Western and Eastern factions.
Nov 23rd, 2009 at 08:54 GMT
The Norman invasion did not conquer Britain! Perhaps you may have heard of some other Kings and Queens Alexander, Duncan, MacBeth, Robert the Bruce, Mary Queen of Scots, James i, II etc and Malcolm III who reigned from 1054 to 1093 whilst England was being invaded (1066 onwards). I don't know too much Welsh hstory apart from Llewellyn I and II who were in several wars against England in the late 12th and early 13th centuries. In other words England does not equal Britain!
Nov 23rd, 2009 at 09:24 GMT
My aim wasn't to offend anyone or anything. It's just a common term thrown around these days to describe the monarchy since William I. Even if its incorrect.
Nov 23rd, 2009 at 13:48 GMT
But it helps on Sporcle if it is correct, since there is such a thing as the first 5 British Kings and Queens, and they begin with Anne. If you mean English Kings and Queens, then that's what should be written. Good quiz otherwise, though.

(also 'Callaghan' doesn't appear to work - at the moment you have to type in his whole name)
Nov 23rd, 2009 at 14:10 GMT
I changed the heading. And Callaghan should work now.

@crazylegs no offence was taken and apologies if it came across that way, what I was pointing out is that although common to say England when meaning Britain (and vice versa) doesn't make it correct, and after all this is a quiz site.
Nov 23rd, 2009 at 17:31 GMT
I got 19/20 of the US ones and 5/40 of the foreign ones. Not so great. haha. 55th percentile though. Not too bad
Nov 23rd, 2009 at 18:36 GMT
@crazylegs Julius Caesar was not a roman emperor. The list correct to start at Augustus.
Nov 24th, 2009 at 00:02 GMT
wow I'm horrible. I couldn't even get all the Canadian ones and I'm Canadian.
Nov 24th, 2009 at 06:07 GMT
I really enjoyed this. I'd love to see a part II
Nov 27th, 2009 at 02:50 GMT
This quiz should really be "first and most recent", because some of these leaders aren't the last ones ever; they're just the most recent.
Nov 29th, 2009 at 02:06 GMT
Excellent quiz. Sorry Canadians but I didn't get one! I think you need to put in the instructions that you consider the Roman Empire to end with the East/West split, as other quizzes call it at the barbarian invasions.
Nov 29th, 2009 at 20:23 GMT
You should probably accept "William the Conqueror" and "William the Great" for William I.
Nov 30th, 2009 at 02:25 GMT
I can't believe I'm such a bad Canadian... 18/20 on the U.S. ones and 7/10 on the Canadian ones. I should have paid more attention in 10th grade history.

Your sources are a bit outdated there, crazylegs...David Cameron became PM of the UK on May the 11th after Gordon Brown resigned the same day.
Jun 1st, 2010 at 18:31 GMT
The English one really has to be changed. Either say 'from 1066 onwards' (in which case it would no longer be first) or start on Alfred the Great, or maybe his son Edward, but one of them anyway. Also, it seems a bit random to me the categories you've chosen, but that's your own choice.
Jun 2nd, 2010 at 10:50 GMT
Agree with Anonymous, my first instinct was also to try William the Conqueror.
Jun 2nd, 2010 at 20:43 GMT
Can you accept the UK prime ministers without earl of/duke of as they do in the prime minister quiz?
