And (drumroll…..) here are the correct answers:

  1. False, but only because he didn’t enter.
  2. True, though it was unveiled in all its… er… splendor only at the start of court.
  3. False, though His Majesty would no doubt make a notable Arthur.
  4. False, but if there had been such a vote, we are absolutely certain he would have won.
  5. True. In fact, he may well BE Batman.
  6. True. One of the royal retainers, Lady Rivka bat Daniyel, even provided an image with a transparent background solely for the purpose of meme creation. Many of the ones we posted here were created by Lady Minamoto Kumamoto Sakurako.
  7. Believe it or not, this is true. In a crowd of people he doesn’t know, when not on the throne, His Majesty can be a little shy.
  8. True only when he is not King. That’s why he’s always on a mission to make court fun.
  9. False, at least as far as we know.
  10. True. As you can plainly see.
  11. True. Except that technically, Molly was Her Majesty’s dog first, but she fell in love with Titus when he moved in and Her Majesty has played second fiddle to Titus (in the chihuahua’s mind) ever since.
  12. True. Obviously.
