Your Jeopardy questions...answered!

Happy Monday everyone - I hope you all had a great weekend!

I know you've all been waiting with baited breath so here are the answers to the Jeopardy questions I posted last week:

Will Somers held this post for Tudor court for many years; his job was to lift the spirits of the King.
Court Jester or Fool

During her "bloody" reign, she had more than 300 protestants and heretics burned at the stake. (I'm thinking it was probably more than 300)

"Bloody" Mary Tudor

When the Countess of Salisbury was executed here for treason, the executioner needs 11 chops.

Tower of London
Dona Elvira was the governess of this woman who married 2 Tudor princes, Arthur and Henry.

Catherine of Aragon

Barnaby Fitzpatrick was the whipping boy and close friend of this Tudor crown prince and future King.

Edward VI

Bonus Question: what TV show did this line come from: "I'm sure we'll all feel comfortable within the confines of the honor system?!"

So, how did you do?


  1. I managed to get them all except Edward VI. Guess I'll have to search for a book on Edward now, eh?

    I love Jeopardy.

  2. That one stumped me too! When you find a book on him let me know because I don't know anything about him!
