How much do you know about history?

#1
A history test.

You scored 25 out of 30. This is a truly impressive score. You should be extremely proud. You have a tremendous knowledge of world history from 1501-1800. You are a motivated and intelligent person and you will go very far in life. Okay, this is where we stop giving you all the credit in the world (this is only world history, after all...) Good job, though!

25 out of 30. Always unsure about the Incas Aztecs

26

But then again my specialist historical subjects are The RAF in the pre-war expansion period to Operation Jubilee and the Air War in the Western Desert and Greece. :(

29 out of 30. Wish I knew which one I got wrong?

BTW question on Lord Protector: Cromwell died 1951, from then until 1660 the country was ruled by "The Generals" the head of state was Richard Cromwell (Olly's son) who, to avoid a 4th Civil War, invited the exiled Charles II to return to England.

You scored 21 out of 30. Great Job! This is a very respectable score. Not many people score this highly. Very impressive. You should do well in life as you have a mix of intelligence, common sense, and knowledge of world history from 1501 to 1800....Still, you are not a master of world history, but, on the bright side, at least you're not a dork

Ok i suppose, but i tend to specialise on wars from the 1900's

29 out of 30 - no idea which one I got wrong

Close but no banana, T_S. Oliver Cromwell died in 1658 (1951 would make him more than a little unusual) and was suceeded as Lord Protector by Richard Cromwell. From the time that Oliver Cromwell became Lord Protector in 1653 he ruled as a sole dictator as did Richard until 1659. "The Generals" were in power between 1649 and 1653.

Also the question is wrong as Richard suceeded Oliver, making two non-royals to have ruled Britain. You could also make an argument for Simon de Montfort and later Roger Mortimer (along with Queen Isabella) having ruled the UK rather than the monarch of the time (Henry III & Edward II/Edward III respectively).
