Quiz Answer Key and Fun Facts
1. He was the eldest son of King Edward VII and the heir to the throne before his early death

Answer: Prince Albert Victor, Duke of Clarence and Avondale

Born two months prematurely in January of 1864, Prince Albert Victor was in line to be King of England after his father, King Edward VII. He was known to have been a slow learner, and might have suffered from seizures.

However, he died of influenza during the Asiatic Flu epidemic of 1889-1892, just after his 28th birthday. At that point, his younger brother, Prince George, became the heir to the throne. Albert Victor's betrothed, Princess Victoria Mary of Teck, was also transferred to George, later becoming Queen Mary.
2. He was the largely unknown sixth of six children and died at the tender age of 13

Answer: Prince John of Wales

Born Prince John Charles Francis on July 12, 1905, he was the youngest child of King George V and Queen Mary. He suffered from epilepsy and poor health, living apart from the rest of the Royal Family for much of his life, nursed by his governess "Lala" Bill. He may have also had autism or a learning disability. The public was not informed of his condition until after his death; he suffered from a particularly terrible seizure in 1919 and died on the 18th of January, 1919.

His case was the first time that a Royal was allowed to regularly associate with commoners; he was allowed to play with local children while living at Sandringham House from 1916 to 1919. He still remains somewhat of an enigma; he was rarely photographed after 1913, and did not regularly appear in public after he turned eleven.
3. Daughter of King Edward VII who became Queen Consort of Norway

Answer: Princess Maud of Wales

Maud Charlotte Mary Victoria was born in 1869 and died in 1938 at the age of 68. She was the daughter of King Edward VII and Queen Alexandra, and the fifth of six children. At the age of 30, she married King Haakon VII of Norway, and became the Queen of Norway. She was known as "Harry" by her family and enjoyed riding.
4. Until the accession of King Charles III, he was the oldest British monarch to come to the throne

Answer: William IV

William wasn't originally supposed to be King. He was the third son of George III, and probably never expected to have to ascend to the throne. Nevertheless, his brother George IV died childless and his second brother, Prince Frederick, Duke of York and Albany, died before George IV and was also childless. William became King in 1830 at the age of 64, and ruled for only 7 years. Because he also had no legitimate children who lived beyond infancy (he had eleven illegitimate children but only four by his wife, who were either born stillborn or died as infants), the throne then passed to the daughter of George III's fourth son, William IV's niece, Queen Victoria.
5. He was the second son of the King, but died in 1827 before the crown could pass to him

Answer: Prince Frederick, Duke of York and Albany

Second son of George III, he was one of fifteen children. Eventually his eldest brother, George IV, became King, but although he had no children, Frederick died before he could succeed to the throne. Because of this, the crown then passed to his younger brother, William IV. Frederick also had no children; his marriage was short-lived and unhappy, so he had no issue who could inherit the throne.
6. The longest-ever living member of the Royal Family when she died at the age of 102

Answer: Princess Alice, Duchess of Gloucester

Princess Alice married Prince Henry, third child of George V, in 1935. She was born in 1901 and died in 2004, just shy of her 103rd birthday. She was also known as the Viceregal Consort of Australia (when her husband was Governor-General of Australia). She had two sons, Prince William of Gloucester and Prince Richard, Duke of Gloucester.
Upon her marriage she became a sister-in-law of Edward VIII and George VI (and thus an aunt of Queen Elizabeth II).
7. The longest-living blood royal and the last grandchild of Queen Victoria

Answer: Princess Alice, Countess of Athlone

Princess Alice was born in 1883, the daughter of Prince Leopold, the Duke of Albany, Queen Victoria's youngest son. When she died in 1981 at the age of 97, she was the longest-living blood royal ever. She was the wife of Prince Alexander of Teck (the brother of Queen Mary, wife of George V).

In addition, she was one of the last carriers of hemophilia within the Royal Family, inheriting it from her father (who died from the disease when she was 1 year old).
8. His questionable past was hushed up after his untimely death in a plane crash

Answer: Prince George, Duke of Kent

Prince George was the fifth child of George V and Queen Mary (an uncle to Queen Elizabeth II). Born Prince George of Wales in 1902, he was rumored to have had relationships with multiple people, including the famous playwright Noel Coward. He was also alleged to have had a child with socialite Kiki Preston, whom some believe to have been Michael Temple Canfield. George died in an RAF plane crash in 1942, and all records of his past were hushed up completely.
9. Ruled as King of England at the same time as his father, King Henry II

Answer: Henry the Young King

According to a strange French Capetian Dynasty custom, King Henry II crowned his son as king while he was still ruling. So although Henry the Young King was technically King of England, he was not actually given complete power. He also does not figure as one of the "numbered" kings named Henry...otherwise he would have been known as Henry III, and Henry VIII would have been Henry IX! He died young, at the age of 28--before his father!
10. A Queen's eldest daughter became Queen of Prussia

Answer: Victoria, Princess Royal

Born in 1840, Princess Victoria was Queen Victoria and Prince Albert's eldest child, and became Princess Royal. In 1858 she married Frederick III, Emperor of Germany, and became Empress and Queen of Prussia. She had eight children, and died in 1901--the same year as her mother.

She was said to have begun the fashion of wearing white as a bride, since her wedding dress was white and the public wished to follow her lead.
