More information about Final Jeopardy:

Prince of Wales is the title given generally to the heir apparent to the British throne. The man who eventually became Edward VII was Prince of Wales for since his 1841 birth until Queen Victoria’s 1901 death (a total of just under 60 years); the man who would eventually become George IV was Prince of Wales for just under 58.

In case you ever need to remember the order of British monarchs between Victoria and Elizabeth II? Edward (VII) – George (V) – Edward (VIII) – George (VI).

  1. I’ll be surprised if anyone gets it right. I know later royalty fairly well but don’t have much interest in all that name-jumping further back. My husband is a retired high school history teacher so might fare better.

  2. Hint: One response has a VI & another one a VIII.

  3. Another triple stumper in Final Jeopardy to start the week.

  4. 3 in a row.

  5. I wonder if they would have accepted “King Edward, son of Queen Victoria?”
