If you’d like to remember and recall all the British monarchs, this video will make
you do exactly that in only a few minutes.
Human memory is predominantly visual, and you can take advantage of that by visualizing
what you need to remember and connecting it to something you already know.
And that’s what I’ll do in this video.
Picture each image in your head, and I’ll connect them for you using a crazy story.
When you want to recall the names of all the British monarchs, here’s what to visualize.
Picture the royal throne where the monarch sits.
You know it’s the throne of the British monarch because the British flag – the Union
Jack – is on the wall behind it.
Sitting on the throne is a queen ant.
The first British monarch after the mergers of the kingdoms of England and Scotland was Queen Anne.
Queen ant sounds very similar to Queen Anne,
so when you picture the ant sitting on the throne
that will link in your mind straight away to Queen Anne, the first British monarch.
The second British monarch was King George, or George the 1st.
George one sounds like judge nun.
Imagine a judge walks up to the queen ant and introduces a nun.
He’s a traditional English judge wearing the long black gown and white wig, and the
nun is wearing the traditional black and white habit.
When you visualize the judge and nuntalking to the queen ant,
you’ll remember George One
After George the 1st was George the 2nd or George 2.
Two sounds like shoe, so let’s visualize the judge pulls off one of his shoes, and
places it on his head.
The shoe is all the colours of the rainbow, very bright.
Kind of a weird thing to do when you’re in the presence of the queen, but at least
now when you picture the judge holding a shoe on his head – judge shoe – you’ll remember
You’ll never guess who came after George the 2nd – it was George the third.
The judge takes the shoe off his head and throws it through the air and it hits another
judge sitting in a tree.
Why is this other judge sitting in a tree?
Because judge tree, sounds like George 3,
and that’s how you’ll remember George 3rd.
The line of King George’s continued on and the next British monarch was George the 4th or George 4.
That sounds like judge door, so we’ll use that.
The judge falls out of the tree and lands on the ground in front of a door.
The door is covered in ornate decorations, and is bright pink, just to make it stand
out in your mind.
Create a clear mental image of the judge landing on the ground in front of the door – judge
door – and you’ll remember George 4.
After George 4th was William 4th or William four.
This time we’ll use will-yam-snore.
这扇亮粉色的门突然打开 一只有胳膊有腿的甘薯出现了 它拿着一张长长的遗嘱
The bright pink door bursts open to reveal a yam with arms and legs, holding a long will.
It’s a will yam.
The will yam is standing up but it’s asleep, and there’s a speech bubble with ‘zzzz’
because the will yam is having a snore.
Now when you imagine that will yam having a snore, that will link in your mind to William 4.
The next monarch after William the 4th was the iconic Queen Victoria.
To remember Victoria, we’ll link it to victory.
The yam wakes up and climbs onto the top step of a podium, where it has a winner’s wreath
put around its neck, and holds its fingers in the V-for-victory sign.
It is victorious.
Clearly imagine this scene of victory, and it will prompt you to recall Queen Victoria.
Following Queen Victoria was Edward 7th or Edward seven.
为了记住他我们用 头 木和天堂
To remember that we’ll use head wood heaven.
Out of the sky falls a head made of wood.
It hits the yam and knocks it to the ground, and then the wooden head settles on the podium.
Behind the head are clouds and pearly gates, like the stereotypical description of heaven.
Visualize in your mind an image of the head of wood with heaven in the background – head
wood heaven – and you’ll remember Edward 7.
Next, we’re back to another King George again, George five this time.
Another judge picks up the head, tucks it under his arm and takes a big dive through the air.
Dive rhymes with five.
Imagine the judge diving through the air, judge dive,
and you’ll remember George five,or King George the 5th.
After George the 5th wasKing Edward the 8th or Edward 8.
让我们用 人头 木头 碟子说下去
Let’s go with head wood plate.
The head of wood grows arms and legs, escapes from the clutches of the judge, and jumps
on a plate that flies through the air like a magic flying carpet.
想象木制人头在碟子上的画面 头 木 碟子
Create a clear mental image of the head of wood on a plate – head wood plate – and
that will prompt you to recall Edward 8, or King Edward the 8th.
Continuing on, and the next British monarch was King George the 6th.
为记住乔治六世我们会用 法官 砖头
For George 6 we’ll use judge bricks.
Yet another judge appears in our story and throws bricks at the wooden head on the plate.
Not a particularly friendly thing to do.
Bricks rhymes with six, so when you imagine the judge throwing bricks,
you’ll be reminded of George six.
Following King George the 6th wasQueen Elizabeth the 2nd.
伊丽莎白二世听起来像蜥蜴 床 鞋子这就是我们要想象的画面
Elizabeth two sounds similar to lizard bed shoe, and that’s what we’ll visualize.
The bricks thrown by the judge crash into the bed of a lizard.
The lizard is lounging back in bed, and it’s wearing a shoe on its head.
想象这幅画面—蜥蜴 床 鞋—
Picture that little scene – lizard bed shoe
and you’ll instantly recall Elizabeth 2 or Queen Elizabeth the 2nd.
And there you have it,
you’ve just memorized the names of the 12 British monarchs from Queen Anne to Queen Elizabeth 2nd.
Now, when you think of British monarchs, you’ll picture the royal throne with the British flag
the Union Jack, behind it.
Sitting on the throne is a queen ant,reminding you of Queen Anne.
A judge walks up to the queen with a nun –judge nun – George 1.
The judge takes off a shoe and puts it on his head – judge shoe – George 2.
这只鞋子被抛向空中 打中了坐在树上的另一个法官—法官 树—乔治三世
The shoe is thrown through the air and hits another judge in a tree – judge tree – George 3
The judge falls out of the tree and lands on the ground in front of a door
judge door – George 4.
The door opens to reveal a yam holding a will and having a snore –
遗嘱 薯 打鼾—威廉四世
will yam snore – William 4.
The yam climbs to the top of a podium to receive the spoils of victory –
victory links to Victoria.
A head of wood falls out of the sky and lands on the podium, with heaven behind it – head
wood heaven – Edward 7.
一个法官捡起人头 像橄榄球似的夹在胳膊下一个飞扑—法官 扑—乔治
A judge picks up the head like a football and takes a big dive
– judge dive – George 5
The wooden head escapes and jumps on a flying plate
—头 木 碟—爱德华八世
– head wood plate – Edward 8.
A judge starts to throw bricks at the plate – judge bricks – George 6.
And the bricks crash into a lizard bed where the lizard is wearing a shoe on its head
—蜥蜴 床 鞋—伊丽莎白二世
– lizard bed shoe – Elizabeth 2.
