The Tudors and Stuarts Quiz

The Tudors and Stuarts Quiz

This is a multiple choice quiz which I have given to my class at the end of our project on the Tudors and Stuarts to assess their understanding of the topic. It is not meant to be a very serious test, as you will see from some of the answer choices, but is a fun way to end the topic.
