Which king invented the handkerchief? Which queen pretended to be invisible? Which king was afraid of witches? Did King Canute harness the waves? Why did Charles II hide in an oak tree? Which king pawned his crown? Did monarchs use contraception? Who was Britain's first royal motorist? Did Mary Queen of Scots murder her husband?
