2 thoughts on ““Tenable” repeats 25 May 2020 onwards (Series 1 Episodes 6-10)

  1. I don’t understand how Henry didn’t make it onto the regnal names list, given that there were 8 of them, and Harold did, despite there being 1 Harold who died in October 1066? – George / Charles / James / John / Richard / Stephen / William / Harold / Edward

    Like

  2. Thanks for pointing that out. Last week I had a rogue 11th answer in a question about the Periodic Table, and in my hurry to post on Monday I missed out Henry. Sorted now. He’s 7th in the list, which counts down in order of when the name was first used by kings from 1 January 1066 onwards (Edward the Confessor at 10, Harold II at 9, William the Conqueror at 8, and so on).
