    Been watching Blackadder again recently so decided to do a quiz, aim is to name the actors playing real historical figures in all the various Blackadder series including the one-offs.

    1. King Richard III
    2. King Henry VII
    3. Queen Elizabeth I
    4. Sir Walter Raleigh
    5. Prince Regent (later King George IV, in real-life anyway!)
    6. Dr Samuel Johnson
    7. Duke of Wellington
    8. William Pitt the Younger
    9. King George III
    10. Samuel Taylor Coleridge
    11. Percy Bysshe Shelley
    12. Lord Byron
    13. Field Marshal Haig
    14. Baron von Richthofen
    15. William Shakespeare
    16. Napoleon Bonaparte
