How much did you pay attention during History lessons at school? I vividly remember sitting towards the back of the classroom with my friend, and we would each take it in turns to bring one of those really big Galaxy Cookie Crumble bars into class and we would slowly work our way through it during the History hour.
Somehow, I still managed to get an A during my History GCSE.
Oddly enough, when you learn about historical figures it is very rare that you actually pay attention to what they look like. Especially since the only way we know what anyone looks like is through the professional paintings done of them, and who can say how accurate those are? Imagine if you could choose how you look in all your photos? I would be a lot taller, that’s for sure!
So, let’s put your historical knowledge to the test! How many of these people famous throughout history can you recognise? Share your quiz results and see if you score better than your friends!
