I suspect the half point is for Catherine Parr, when I thought about

it after I'd posted, I figured maybe Anne of Cleaves was the most

likely survivor, being that little bit younger than Catherine of Aragon.

Yes, That is something to remember for future reference. Corky seems to have done the same thing, so the gap, plus the fact that no one is used to having Bonus Questions, on a Tuesday Night, could well be to blame. lol!

I will be heading to bed shortly, so I will post the answers tomorrow evening, if that is OK??
