I hope you find your history head is time @Cleoriff

Oh I think I may have forgot to mention one little thing Whistle, 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 yahoo

Q1 = William

Q2 = worn by many warriors around the world but not Vikings. I think they were first worn by Sardinian warriors?

 

Q3 = Sir Francis Drake and Lord Charles Howard

Q1 - William of Normandy, aka William the Conqueror
Q2 - Often worn for ceremony or by warriors but if I had to choose one early race I'd say the Gauls.
Q3 - Lord Charles Howard and Sir Francis Drake.

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. upside_down
