Many of us fancy ourselves as history fans (even if our knowledge begins and ends at World War II).

But how well do you REALLY know history?

Our 15-question multiple-choice quiz takes you through some of the time periods covered by GCSE history, testing your knowledge in rapid-fire style.

From the Battle of Hastings right up to the first Gulf War, this quiz will test your knowledge of many different time periods, leaders and ways of life.

The quiz starts off fairly gently, with some questions you might be able to get just via general knowledge.

But stick with it and you’ll be bamboozled with some very tough questions indeed, from dates in European history to the nicknames of kings.

Test your history knowledge below!
