Robin Hood and English History lessons

While watching "Robin Hood" with Henry (Disney version of course), I made the mistake of mentioning there really was a Prince John and King Richard. This sparked an onslaught of questions.

Henry: Really?

Mama: Yes and do you know who their Mama was? Eleanor of Acquitaine. And their Daddy was Henry, like you. Richard was married to Berengaria of Navarre and John was married to Isabella of Angouleme....

Henry: Tell me who everyone else was married to! All the rabbits an' pigs an' dogs!

Mama: Those are made-up characters, Henry. I don't know who they really were. Richard and John lived a long, long time ago- 800 years ago.

Henry: They're dead now, aren't they?

Mama: Yes.

Henry: I'm so smart.

Guess so.
