Edward VII was the House of Saxe-Coburg-Gotha, not Windsor.

Edward VII should be listed under House of Saxe-Coburg-Gotha, Windsor only came under proclamation of George V. Thanks!

Just curious - why is Sophia Dorothea of Brunswick-Lüneburg not included for George I?

Yes, I wondered about that too- any answer?

George's marriage to Sophia Dorothea was dissolved, not on the grounds that either of them had committed adultery, but on the grounds that Sophia Dorothea had abandoned her husband.

Well, Sophia Dorothea of Celle was never crowned queen and they separated in 1694, long before he ascended the throne and became king (in 1714), so there's no reason why she should count...

you can make the same argument for Caroline of Brunswick, she was never crowned Queen either and spent most of her marriage separated, yet she's listed here.

Should need more than just first names, too easy to get like 5 in 1 by typing Catherine

Hehe, I thought the same!

I made this quiz a few days ago, which is slightly more challenging, if you're at all interested - same topic, but it doesn't involve random guessing. Here's the link: https://www.jetpunk.com/user-quizzes/1658671/english-consorts-by-portrait

I know this reply is somewhat late, but I don't think Philip II was included since he was made a "King of England and Ireland 'jure uxoris'". That basically means he held the office of "King" through his wife, so while she actually did the ruling, he technically wasn't just a consort...

Charles didn't marry any of those ladies. They were all his mistresses.

Why is Isabelle not accepted for Isabella? There were a lot of spelling variants in earlier times, such as Catherine/Katherine/Kathryn for three of Henry VIII's wives

any particular reason for the wives of Henry VIII to be in that order? It's the order of marriage...
