I repeated the Willy Willy Harry Ste rhyme so many times during this, at one point I started to doubt my own sanity.

How come Henry I and Stephen have lower percentages than William I and William II, when you have to get the later two in order to have a chance at the earlier two?

I looked right away to see whether Jane and Matilda were included... and then still got tripped up by Jane. I hate my brain.

High 5 for including Jane

A few things are slightly awry here: firstly, I've only have seen Lady Jane Grey referred to as that, never as 'Queen Jane.' Since she was only recognised by a few places, you'll probably get people complaining that she shouldn't even be listed in this quiz! Secondly, you should include Henry VI and Edward IV twice, as the order (in reverse) should be Edward V - Edward IV - Henry VI - Edward IV - Henry VI - Henry V. You wouldn't leave one of Churchill's periods in office out of a list of Prime Ministers of the UK.

So I have a question, probably for an Englander. Why should we include Lady Jane Grey as a monarch and not Henry, the Young King, who was crowned and anointed as King of England in 1170 and remained so until his death in 1183. Why should William III and Mary II be co-monarchs and that is accepted and yet Henry the Young King is not accepted as a co-monarch, despite the crown on his head.

I have to say that I'd never heard of him up until your comment. Having checked out his Wikipedia page (a great source, I know), it's probably because he 'reigned' during the reign of his own father, and his father outlived him. Regarding William and Mary - they were invited to come as a pair and are pretty much known as such in the history that we get taught, even though William lived longer than Mary.

Just to confuse things further, here's a few things from the official website of the British Monarchy. The Anglo-Saxon kings begin with Offa (757-796), leap to Egbert (802-839), and end with Edgar Atheling (1066). Under the Normans it's Stephen AND Matilda (1135-54). Henry the Young king is not mentioned under Anjevins and Lady Jane Grey is included under Tudors.
