When she say "She died in..." the pronoun leads takers to believe it's about the Mary, Queen of Scots.

Greatly enjoyed the quiz, but the phrasing and which questions accepted which answers (Elizabeth, Anne, Edward especially) was iffy.

I agree - in all fairness, since so many people shared names at that time there's not a lot that could have been done, but still

I enjoyed this quiz but agree with Adrienne. I knew when Elizabeth died but assumed the question was about Mary, Queen of Scots.

Also, the question about what Catherine Howard was accused of, followed by "and" had me trying to think of what else she was accused of, not what her fate was. I only missed one other besides these two, so shouldn't complain. right?
