Think you know the year Prince Harry founded the Invictus Games for veterans, or when the Queen Mother was born? This tricky game shows how much of a history buff you really are.
Put your knowledge about the royal family to the test with this Coronation edition of Yeardle game.
Each day, you will have up to six chances to get the dates correct – can you guess quicker than your friends?
It comes after research found millions of Brits are clueless about royal history with more than one in 10 believing actor Hugh Grant is part of the monarchy.
A study of 2,000 adults found 11 per cent also assumed David Attenborough is related to the royal family, while others thought the same of Keira Knightly (10 per cent) and Colin Firth (10 per cent).
Family history also proved problematic with 14 per cent unable to identify a picture of Queen Victoria, and 12 per cent didn’t know what Henry VIII looked like.
And while the royal family changed their name to Windsor during World War I, just 48 per cent knew they were previously known as Saxe-Coburg.
Instead, 15 per cent believed they were known as the Tudor family – despite these royals being on the throne hundreds of years earlier.
While only 65 per cent knew Henry VIII had six wives.
Many Brits have no clue
A spokesman for Lottoland, which commissioned the research and created the game, said: “Many of us love reading about the royal family – they are figure heads for the UK and are known around the world.
“But it seems many are confused by the monarchy and its history – even when it comes to previous kings and queens.
‘’More importantly, the fact that celebrities and icons such as Hugh Grant and David Attenborough are even thought of as members of the royal family
