Nicknames of British monarchs

Can you complete the nicknames of some of these monarchs of Britain? Nicknames include Cognomens which are appended names (e.g. Robert the Bruce) or Sobriquets which are familiar nicknames recognisable with a single person (e.g. Caligula for Gaius Julius Caesar Germanicus).
Monarchs include a few Anglo-Saxon kings too, and appear in order of reign.

Very good quiz! I was surprised how many I didn't know. The Prince of Whales? The Huckster King? Nice to learn something new.

Thank you you're so lovely x) Yes I had never heard of most of them either. Many of them are little known and a few are quite cruel nicknames that derive from caricaturists' lampoons. I couldn't include James II's nickname because it's rather rude.
