D - London Bridge is Falling Down (The attack on Viking-occupied London with the Norwegian king Olaf II)
E - Humpty Dumpty ('Humpty Dumpty' was a siege engine that was used unsuccessfully during the Siege of Gloucester in the English Civil War)

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Little_Boy_Blue
Little boy blue- the rhyme was used to represent Cardinal Wosley
GOD SAVE THE KING/GOD SAVE THE QUEEN: ITS THE SAME AS REMEMBER,REMEMBER!
Remember, remember the Fifth of November,
The Gunpowder Treason and Plot,
I know of no reason
Why the Gunpowder Treason
Should ever be forgot.
Guy Fawkes, Guy Fawkes, t'was his intent
To blow up the King and Parli'ment.
Three-score barrels of powder below
To prove old England's overthrow;
By God's providence he was catch'd (or by God's mercy*)
With a dark lantern and burning match.
Holla boys, Holla boys, let the bells ring.
Holloa boys, holloa boys, "God save the King!"
And what should we do with him? Burn him!

God Save the King refers to the National Anthem of the U.K., see https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/God_Save_the_Queen. "Remember, remember" may contain the words 'God save the King" but that does not qualify as it's alternate name, especially since a hugely popular national anthem exists with the same name.
As for, Little Boy Blue, I'll accept that answer even though the web results and certain pages, read non-Wikipedia, point only to Old Mother Hubbard.
