Quiz Answer Key and Fun Facts
1. Was banished over a duel but returned and seized the crown

Answer: Henry IV

Henry Bolingbroke, Duke of Hereford, was not in the direct line for the throne, but when he was scheduled for a duel of honor with Thomas de Mowbray, Richard decided to banish both men to avoid bloodshed. However, Richard took control of Henry's inheritance while he was in banishment, provoking Henry to return and seize the crown.

He ruled over Britain from 1399 to his death in 1413, notably facing the conflict with Owain Glendowr.
2. Left the Royal Family with wife Meghan

Answer: Prince Harry, Duke of Sussex

Prince Harry is the son of King Charles III and his first wife, Diana, Princess of Wales. He married actress Meghan Markle in 2018, but the couple left the royalty two years later and quit their status as working royals. He has two children, Archie and Lillibet Mountbatten-Windsor.
3. He was crowned during his father's reign and died before his father

Answer: Henry the Young King

Although officially crowned in 1170, during his father Henry II's lifetime, Henry the Young King (as he was known) was not granted total power in the usual sense. He was only fifteen when he was crowned his father's co-ruler, following a tradition of the French Captetian Dynasty. He died at the age of 28, during the Great Revolt that he conducted against his father.
4. Made himself the head of a new church in order to get a divorce

Answer: Henry VIII

Henry VIII got into difficulty with Pope Clement VII when he asked for an annulment in his marriage with Catherine of Aragon (with whom he had several children). When the Pope refused, Henry decided to create a new church--the Church of England--and proclaim himself its head. Henry was also famous for his six wives, two of which he had beheaded. He ruled from 1509 to 1547.
5. Began the Lancastrian War phase of the Hundred Years' War

Answer: Henry V

Henry V was born in 1386 and began taking on more royal duties with the declining health of his father, Henry IV. He began his campaign against France in 1415, beginning the last phase of the Hundred Years' War. However, he died in 1422 at the young age of 35, while in France on campaign.

The possible cause of his death was dysentery. He had been named as King of France by Charles VI of France at the Treaty of Troyes in 1420. Henry V is also known as Prince Hal in Shakespeare's famous Henry IV plays, where he acts the irresponsible young Prince with his mentor, Falstaff.
6. His barons kept seizing power from him

Answer: Henry III

Although a pious and personal ruler, Henry III (who ruled from 1216 to 1272) became increasingly unpopular during his later years. The Second Barons' War began in 1263 when the baron Simon de Montfort attempted to seize the crown. This was a bit like history repeating itself since when Henry II had become King at the age of 9, the First Barons' War against his father King John was only just ending! He was also known for constructing Westminster Abbey, where he was buried.
7. Was almost made king when elder brother Albert's ability to rule was questioned

Answer: Prince Henry, Duke of Gloucester

Prince Henry was the third son of George V. When his brother King Edward VIII abdicated in 1936, his next brother Albert (renamed George VI) became king, making Henry the next in line after Albert's daughters. However, the public called Albert's ability to rule into question, circulating rumors that he suffered from the same epilepsy and possible autism that his youngest brother John had had, and requesting that the crown pass to Prince Henry.

These claims were possibly based on Albert's shy nature and his hesitation in speech.

The Palace denied any such claims and the crown passed to Albert. Prince Henry later became the Governor General of Australia. He was the last of George V's sons to die, at the age of 74 in 1974.
8. The only British monarch to be crowned King of France

Answer: Henry VI

Henry inherited the Hundred Years' War from his father, Henry V, but he also inherited the crown of France, which Charles VI of France contested. Henry VI was supposed to have been weak-willed and an ineffective warrior, finally having the throne of England seized from him by his son's cousin, Edward IV.

He was imprisoned in the Tower of London and died in 1471, possibly killed by Edward's order.
9. This skinflint King came out victorious at Bosworth Field

Answer: Henry VII

Henry VII, also known as Henry Tudor, was the second cousin of Henry VI, and seized the crown from Richard III at the Battle of Bosworth Field. He was also known for having been a tightwad: he was careful with his money and created several new taxes to generate more income. This careful saving was destroyed by his son Henry VIII, however, who spent lavishly.
10. When his legitimacy as King was disputed he gave lifelong imprisonment to his brother

Answer: Henry I

Henry I was not originally meant to be King of England. He was the fourth of William the Conqueror's four sons; his older brothers were given different territories, but he wound up landless. He seized the throne of England when his brother William died; this claim was disputed by his brother Robert (who ruled over the Duchy of Normandy), but Henry invaded Normandy and captured his brother, whom he imprisoned for the rest of his life.

His heirless death resulted in civil war for England, called the Anarchy.
