I didn't know the answer to Q1. I knew it wasn't Edward 1st due to some 'rumble in the jungle' but had no idea who it was. That was a hard question.

 

As for the David Bowie Berlin Trilogy, I would have paid more attention if I was the one doing the quiz!!

I read the question as the SECOND album ...so struggled between Low and Heroes as they were both released in 1977. I knew Lodger was the 3rd. Banana

I hadn't a clue about Q1 as I have never been interested in royalty or their titles.

I did manage to get all the others.

Thanks @Cleoriff ; @pgn ; @jonsie ; @Anonymous  for the feedback on how you got on.

The questions weren`t easy - but it`s good to see that everyone got the dice one right.

I wait to see what @AnnieM made of the questions.

 

Everyone has different interests and to keep the quiz fun, so more might play along or put their name forward as a contestant, I am going to add two more categories from which I will choose the six questions over the weekend for next week`s White Room Thursday Quiz.

The six questions next week will be from - History; Sport; Events; Food & Drink; Space; TV sitcoms. 

 

If anyone - whether a new member or a member who has not put their name forward - would like to be considered as a contest, please pm me [@Mi-Amigo] and I will add your name to the draw to be made by @EmilieT .

I'm happy with 4 and a half stars! I appreciate the half as I had absolutely no idea about that one. Thank you, @Mi-Amigo for setting the questions. 

 

I do remember reading something about Llewellyns as Prince of Wales, but had a feeling that they were not official rolling_eyes
