And indeed we have a winner - Lucian, with 10 correct answers. Well done!! :)

Just to sum up:
1) 116 years, from 1337 to 1453
2) Ecuador
3) Sheep and Horses (according to wiki “it is supposed that the word is properly kitgut ("violin string"), kit meaning "fiddle", and that the present form has arisen through confusion with kit = cat”)
4) November - on the 7th to be precise (Russia used the Julian Calendar until 1918 so their calendar was 13 days “behind” ours). The upheaval is also known as the Bolshevik Revolution or November Revolution
5) Squirrel fur (or alternatively ox, goat, pony or blend of several hairs)
6) Dogs (The Latin name was Insularia Canaria - Island of the Dogs)
7) Albert - when he came to the throne in 1936 he respected the wish of Queen Victoria that no future king should ever be called Albert
8) Crimson
9) New Zealand (True, they did originate from China, but today we mainly associate them with New Zealand even though Italy is now the top producer. New Zealand is where they were given the name “Chinese gooseberries”, where the plant was also cultivated, developped and marketed into the fruit we know today, and then later renamed “kiwi(fruit)” as part of a marketing strategy in the late 50s/early 60s)
10) Thirty years of course!! Why look so surprised? (from 1618-1648)

4. Tiny Dancer by Elton John: Hold me closer, tiny dancer, count the headlights on the highway.

6. Ticket To Ride by the Beatles: She's got a ticket to ride.
7. "Good King Wenceslas looked out, on the feast of Stephen."
