    Love this quiz, but I got the Lady Jane Grey question wrong. It has been recently suggested that she was born in perhaps 1536. But like it is said in the question it is controversial 🙂

    Knew Elizabeth I was born 7th September 1533 but forgot which sign is then, so only 10/11 this time. Another interesting quiz, thanks.
