    Excellent, thanks! I can now ponder these 21 before pondering (and writing an essay about) how much of a threat Mary, Queen of Scots posed to England and Elizabeth I....

    Good list - very Jimmy Carr-ish one liners!

    Flutey - easy essay - "not much, since they kept her locked up for years before disposing of her".............and was there another Elizabeth? The one you refer to was the only Queen of England with that name that I'm aware of, the present incumbent of Buck House being the first Elizabeth of the United Kingdom.

    Don't even get me started on that argument! And Cunard cruise ships- they had the Queen Elizabeth, then the QE2 and now they've got rid of her, they're introducing the Queen Elizabeth again, but it's a different ship... however, it implies 3 monarchs of the same name- madness! *random rant over*
