Wiki B-Day meme

Thanks, Caveman, here goes:

Three events:

1098 - Fighters of the First Crusade defeat Kerbogha of Mosul.
1243 - Innocent IV becomes Pope.
1914 - Franz Ferdinand, Archduke of Austria and his wife Sophia are assassinated in Sarajevo by young Serbian nationalist Gavrilo Princip , the casus belli of World War I.

Two B-days:
1476 - Pope Paul IV (d. 1559)
1491 - King Henry VIII of England (d. 1547)

One death:

767 - Pope Paul I

And one Holiday/Event:

Feast day of Saint Irenaeus of Lyon

I'll tag TiberJumper.

1) Go to Wikipedia

2) In the search box, type your birth month and day but not the year.

3) List three events that happened on your birthday

4) List two important birthdays and one death

5) One holiday or observance (if any)
