History Fun Facts October 24th


On This Day in 1537, Jane Seymour, third wife of Henry VIII, died.
Jane Seymour became the wife of Henry-Eight-All-The-Pies, and Queen of England, after the rather unfortunate and unpredictable death of her predecessor, Anne Boleyn.
Jane Seymour died after postnatal complications almost two weeks after the birth of her son, who later became King Edward VI of England.
Because of her successfully giving Henry VIII a son, because he didn't like daughters, she was the only one of Henry VIII's wives to get a Queen's funeral.
Plus, as an extra special treat, she was the only one to be buried beside the King in St. George's Chapel at Windsor Castle.
On This Day In History in 1851, William Lassell discovered something remarkable through his telescope.
Yep, he noticed you doing naked Yoga and he eye-spied the moons Umbriel and Ariel orbiting Uranus.
Must wipe more thoroughly in future.

The Roman Emperor Domitian was born on this day in history in 51 AD.
