(47 Views)
#1
Thumbs Down 
1. Queen Elizabeth II is distantly related to
Vlad the Impaler, the infamous Romanian
ruler who gave rise to Dracula stories!
2. King Henry VIII exploded in his coffin,
and his remains were ‘licked up by dog’ as
was bravely predicted by Friar Peto. He was
not the only exploding king of England,
however. William the Conqueror was the
other.
3. Believe it or not, medieval football often
led to injuries and death. At least 40 men
drowned during the game, while chasing
the ball into the sea!
4. King Henry III had a pet polar bear which
he received from the King of Norway. Kept
on a leash in the Tower of London, the bear
would swim and catch fish in the Thames.
5. Winston Churchill was terrible at school,
except in English composition and history.
In fact, he failed twice at the entrance
exams for the Royal Military College, before
going on to become one of Britain’s most
famous prime ministers!
