The English

Kings and

Queens:

When trying to recall the entire list of english sovereignty, there happens to be a ryhme thats quite long, but amazing at putting the royals in place.

~

Willie,  Willie  Harry  Stee,
Harry,  Dick,  John,  Harry  three,
One two three Neds, Richard two,
Harrys four five six...... then who?

Edward four five, Dick the Bad,
Harry twain, Neds six the lad,
Marry, Bessie, James you ken,
Then Charlie charlie, James again......

Will and Mary, Anne of Gloria,
George Four!, Will four, Victoria,
Edward Seven next, and then
came George the fith in 1910.

Ned the eight soon abdicated,
so George six was coronated,
(or George the six was reinstated)

Then number two Elizabeth.
The end (for now)
