New fun quiz: Which famous warrior are you?

Robert Bruce 2Yay, it’s time for a new quiz!    It’s been a while, but I have a good one for you here.

Which famous warrior do you think you are?

You’ve been asking yourself this question for so long… and now you can find out, just by answering these simple questions!   All you have to do is work out if you have chosen mostly A, B, or C etc, and then scroll down to read about your warrior twin!

There’s no need to click ‘Finish Survey’ but if you do, be aware that it will take you away from your answers, so write them down first.

Expect total historical inaccuracy, followed by outrage or despair (a bit like a Monty Python film).  If you don’t like your warrior counterpart… well, I don’t know what you can do, really.   Go and slay a few dragons!   Alternatively, please feel free to share your feelings in the Comments box.

Think very carefully… the fate of your country rests on your shoulders.


RobertthebruceMostly A:     Robert the Bruce.    You’re bold, cunning and strong-minded, and you will stop at nothing to get what you want.  Your reputation and your beard precede you.  Scotland will be proud of you.  We salute your schiltrons.  A shame about the shampoo.

Boudicca_Statue_Westminster_Bridge,_London_(7269525940)Mostly B:    Boadicea.     No one crosses you twice!   You’re standing up for your family, for your tribe, and for freedom.  Men see you, and quake with fear.   You would probably even scare Jeremy Clarkson.  Don’t expect to be asked onto Ready, Steady, Cook.

Columba CropMostly C:    St Columba.    Descended from an Irish king, you got into some hot water and opted for self-imposed exile.   Now, the only battles you’re fighting are internal ones.  Crack open a bottle of wine, kick off your habit, and watch a re-run of Friends.   And a stone pillow, really?   With all those eider ducks around?

1280px-Lightning_strike_jan_2007Mostly D:    Thor.    A hammer-wielding god of Norse mythology.   You can create lightning and throw thunderbolts.   You have a fearsome reputation, but if you scare the Vikings you must be doing something right.   Tension is probably your worst enemy.   Remember to relax, and breathe.

King_Edward_IIMostly E:    Edward II.    Oh, no.   Surely not?   But wait, Edward II wasn’t all that bad.  It was just that his dad was a hard act to follow.   You’re talented and eager, but you’re also swayed by your heart.   One tip, if you’re planning a holiday:  wild camping in Scotland is not the greatest idea.

355px-Ethelred_the_UnreadyMostly F:    Ethelred the Unready.    Dude!  You’re so laid back you’re horizontal.  No one is going to get anywhere near bothering you.  If you’d been around in the 1970s you’d be riding a Lambretta and listening to the Kinks.  Just remember your responsibilities from time to time and you’ll be OK.  Or you should be.  Or, actually…


  1. Brilliant, love it! Thanks Jo. Apparently I’m a combination of St Columba and Edward II. Perhaps I should have chosen the jewelled sword option after all.

    • Thanks, Rachel! 🙂 Aha, it sounds like you have peaceful tendencies with a hidden passion for bling. Also, you could get potential opponents to admire the jewels in your sword and then just knock them out.

  2. Ha ha – wonderful! I came out as St Columba, closely followed by Robert the Bruce. I’m happy with that. 🙂

    • That’s the perfect answer for you, I think, Lorna! There’s no denying a Scots lass. Glad you liked it! 🙂

      • It was excellent! I loved the descriptions of each warrior at the end, too. Thank you for such a fun ‘fun quiz’.

      • Thank you! 🙂 I had just as much fun writing it! I was on the phone just now to Verity, who did the quiz while she was still on the phone, and she got mostly C (St Columba). What’s more, she was already drinking a glass of wine and watching Friends! 😀

      • Have you ever thought of writing fiction? Having a knack for spotting character traits can be a very useful skill.

      • I often think of it, Lorna, to be honest. I am one of those people who will cling onto something saying “no, no, no, no, no…” until I’m forced to do it. What scares me too is that if I start out in a serious tone I might lapse into a style like Monty Python/Blackadder/Ernie Wise (the plays what he wrote) and put everybody off. But never say never! 🙂 And thank you!

      • I hope you do it one day. I’m the other way round, I want to write comedy or farce but it ends up getting all serious. I don’t know if you’d be interested or have the time, but there’s a great free online fiction writing course from the OU that I’ve found really motivating. It’s nearly finished now but they’re running it again later this year:

      • Thank you very much, Lorna, and for the vote of confidence. I will check out that link! 🙂

  3. I’m the hammerwielding Thor but with a jewelled sword, would you believe. I don’t. Did you make this up Jo? Good fun. (At least I’m not John Knox but Thor shares many of his characteristics!!) 😉

    • Well done, Marie! Thor with a jewelled sword is a force to be reckoned with. Yes, I was writing it this afternoon. Glad you enjoyed it! 🙂

  4. My highest scores were split evenly between Robert the Bruce & St.Columba!!! Followed by an even split between Boadicea & Thor!!! Now I’m having a good laugh at myself. That’s quite cheered me up!

    • Great stuff, Ash! That sounds like a great combination, although I don’t know who will come out on top. Mind how you go with that chariot! 🙂

  5. Martha Kennedy says:

    Aye… Pass the haggis

  6. Just found this – huge fun! – and I am definitely The Bruce. Must be the beard. 😉

  7. I got mostly As then Ds …. Funny, because I’m half Scotttish and half Norwegian! As Jo says, the genes will always out! … That was a fun one! Thanks!
