History Fun Facts September 9th

HISTORY FACTS - September 9th

On This Day In History in 1087 William the Conqueror was killed after he fell off his horse.
William the Conqueror was also known as King William I (Borg designation: first of four).
But, here’s something you may not have known: before he was William the Conqueror of England, he was called William the Bastard.
Yes, William was a bastard.
Not only in the "Your Mummy not married to your Daddy" kind of way, as his father was the Duke of Normandy and his mother was the unmarried hussy daughter of a bloke who played with dead bodies, but also in the "You’re a complete and utter..." type of way.
Mainly because he invaded England.
Sheesh, what a complete and utter....
On This Day In History in 1543, Mary Stuart was crowned Queen of Scotland in an almost lavish ceremony at Stirling (that's in Scotland).
Mary, Queen of Scots, was only 9 months old when she was crowned Queen. She actually became queen at only 6 days old. With her first act as Queen, she issued a proclamation that everyone should make fun of her cousin's ginger wig, and that three hundred puppies should be thrown into a volcano.
On the 8th of February, 1587, Mary, Queen of Scots, was executed at Fortheringhay castle after she was found writing letters making fun of the ginger wig her cousin, Queen Elizabeth I, kept wearing.
