Here's one way to rememebr the kings although I think it came in about 50 years ago when Elizabeth was still known affectionatley as Lilibet.

William 1 and 2 then Henry 1
Steve, Hal 2, Dick and John
Hal 3, then Ed 1 through 3
Dick 2, then Henrys the next three.
Ed 4 and 5 then Hunchback Dick
Henry 7, 8 with wifes all six.
Sickly Ed then Jane caused a tiss
Then his sisters Mary, Liz.
James then Charles who lost his head.
Cromwell made an uneasy bed.
Charles, James, then Mary and Will
Anne and the sucession Bill.
Georges 1,2,3 and 4
Will 4 then Victoria
Edward, George repeat last bit
Then Liz 2 or Lilibet.
