20 Famous Quotes That Were Never Actually Spoken

From Star Trek to Churchill, the much-loved phrases that are actually misquotes

20. "We Are Not Amused" - Queen Victoria

Queen Victoria We Are Not Amused

The most famous mis-quotation from a British royal in history, yet there is absolutely no evidence at all that Queen Vic said this herself.

This would certainly fit in with her general attitude, but unfortunately it appears that Gilbert and Sullivan's HMS Pinafore quote was not said by VIc afterall.
