    Yikes, I will probably be embarrassed by some of my wrong answers but here it goes!
    1. 2, 2. 2, 3. 3, 4. 2, 5. 3, 6. 2, 7. 3, 8. 3, 9. 2, 10. 1

  2. Marnee Bailey says:

    Agree with all Lauren’s answers above except 5. I’d say it’s John Nash, #1.

    Great quiz, Jerrica!

  3. Angelyn says:

    Ditto Marnee’s response. I just posted on Nash at my blog. I love these quizzes! My characters would be familiar with all those locations, including Marshalsea. Gasp!

  4. Erin Kelly says:

    Yikes – I wish I knew more than I did! I am sadly behind, especially since I’m a regency writer myself! I have no idea what/where Marshalsea is, and not a clue who the architect of the era was. As for Prinny, he became King George the [mumble mumble] 😉 Fun quiz!

  5. Thanks, everyone, for playing my Regency game!

    After a random drawing, the winner of the contest is…

    Angelyn!

    Congrats, Angelyn – I’ll send you an email shortly 🙂
