I hope as many of you as possible will take part, and new members or those who have not taken part in a previous Thursday Quiz, will join us.
If you have questions about the Thursday Quiz, please ask and I`ll post an answer before the Quiz is posted.
Thank you, once again, for your interest.
I better rush off and find my history head @Mi-Amigo I'm sure I left around here somewhere
I hope you find your history head is time @Cleoriff
Oh I think I may have forgot to mention one little thing , and I was so pleased that History got the most votes, because it was my second favourite [to maths] at school and got the O level equivalent of A+ , so I am well looking forward to what answers you all come up

Q1 Who became King of England after the Battle of Hastings in 1066?

No googling, wiki, social media, website seaches for the answers.
Please answer all three questions in the same post as - Q1 = [answer]; Q2 = [answer]; Q3 = [answer].
If you do not know the answer to any question, please say Q? = [don`t know]

Incorrect answers will receive the * klaxon * . Correct answers will be awarded
Any interesting facts - or amusing comments - in reply to any question are welcomed
Just to add to my answer re Q1)
Edgar 2nd was proclaimed to be King of England after the Battle of Hastings BUT he was never crowned. Therefore he was never King.
That period in history had a number of people putting themselves forward as King, before and after the battle. A real mess in fact.
