Today is the last day of our #HistoricalBlitz, and we hope you’ve enjoyed it as much as we have! We can’t wait to get reading!

Now you’ve done the hard work and sent your submission into us, we thought you deserved a bit of a treat, and a fun quiz to help brighten up your Tuesday. Sit back with a cup of tea (or a cocktail, depending on what time of day you’re reading this!), and take our Historical Heroes quiz. You may discover your ideal match…

You’re going for dinner with the perfect man! He’s taking you out for:

a Oysters, champagne and strawberries in a very expensive restaurant

b An intimate candlelit dinner for two

c Outdoors, just you and a campfire—the food isn’t as important as the setting

d A hog-roast—certainly no cutlery!

It’s your first date together. Your ideal hero would:

a Arrive at your door in a fast car, wearing an evening suit, and whisk you away to a glamorous ballroom for a night of dancing

b Take you for a walk in the park, hold your hand, and tell you how wonderful and special you are

c Share his love of the natural world by saddling up the horses and showing you the beautiful countryside

a A long weekend in a gorgeous country manor with luxurious feather beds

b Sweeping you away to a romantic castle in the Scottish highlands

c Camping—you both love to be close to nature

d To show you all the lands he has conquered

 Your birthday has arrived, and he wants to show his love for you with a gift. Is it:

a A perfume inspired by, and made, just for you

b A single red rose, with a poem he has written for you carefully wrapped around the stem

c A beautiful white horse

d A casket of gold and jewels from far-off lands

A night out turns ugly, and you’re feeling threatened. How does your hero protect you?

a He turns the situation around with a quip—and a steely glint in his eye that suggests he’s not a man to be messed with!

b He jumps to your defence, making it clear that he’s prepared to fight for you

c He turns over a table and starts a bar fight to get you out

d He hits first, and asks questions afterwards

 Which of these statements most closely describes your ideal man?

a Witty, charming and devil-may-care

Your ideal hero is . . .
