Kings and Queens of England and Great Britain: The Mnemonic Song

(from the Norman Conquest to the present)

Tune: Good King Wenceslas

Willie, Willie, Harry, Ste,
Harry, Dick, John, Harry Three;
One, Two, Three Neds, Richard Two,
Harry Four, Five, Six, then who?

Edward Four, Five, Dick the Bad,
Harrys twain and Ned the Lad;
Mary, Bessie, James the Vain,
Charlie, Charlie, James again.

William and Mary, Anna Gloria,
Four Georges, William and Victoria;
Edward the Seventh next and then
George the Fifth in Nineteen Ten.

Edward the Eighth soon abdicated
And so a George was reinstated;
Now since Nineteen Fifty-Two
The Queen is Elizabeth Two.
