Who was the last monarch of England, Ireland and Scotland ?


I think you're both wrong @ first two answerers...

Update 2:

who was the last monarch to have been the King of England, Scotland AND Ireland ?

I guess that will now give it away...

    The last king was William III, the last monarch was Anne who was Queen of England, Scotland and Ireland between 8 March 1702 and 1 May 1707.

    I'd say it was Henry VIII although he was not recognised as King of Ireland by the Catholic Church whom he had separated from to form the Church of England.

    Queen Anne was the last monarch of all three kingdoms at the same time. During her reign (1707) the kingdoms of Scotland and England were abolished to become the Kingdom of Great Britain after Scotland bankrupted itself over the Darien venture (the failed attempt to establish New Caledonia in Panama). 

    George III was king when the kingdom of Ireland was abolished in 1800, to merge with the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Ireland, later renamed the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland to take account of the secession of Eire in 1922.

    Queen Elizabeth is currently the monarch of England, Wales, Scotland, and Northern Ireland (plus a few other independent countries that recognize her throne).
