Apologies for the double answer. Serve me right for not reading my earlier post.
Thanks to @Mi-Amigo for running the quiz and @EmilieT for picking me!

 

Edit: Oh, and i meant Saturn in my first post anyway (I was thinking the one with the rings) but would have been wrong again!!

@EmilieT  I really expected that you would know the last King of France. When I read the questions, my first thought was @EmilieT will get that one... wink

@Cleoriff History wasn't my strongest subject in school rolling eyes

 

I found the classes really interesting but always found it really hard to remember dates and other historical facts ...

To be honest @EmilieT , I found out more about history when I started reading books by Jean Plaidy, Georgette Heyer and Philippa Gregory. rofl

Re: The White Room Thursday Quiz - 3 October 2019

Thanks guys.

When it comes to the results and feedback, which shows it is never easy to know what is going to be an "easy" or "difficult" question. When I go through the ideas at the weekend for the questions, I might come across a QI-style one - only for the contestant and the players to get it, but then again I might find a question which I think will be easier and everyone will get which no-one finds the answer to.

I hope that the mix of questions continues to entertain and you will all have a go and have fun next week.
