Died on this day in 1426 aged 36 Catherine of Pomerania (my toy,wikipedia). Grand-daughter of Bogislaw, grand father of Anne, wife of Richard II. Catherine and her brother were adopted by their Grand-aunt, I'm not clear on why, although this resulted in her brother becoming King of Denmark/Sweden/Norway. It was apparently planned to send Catherine to a convent, but she was eventually married off.

Born on this day in 1715 James Waldegrave , 2nd Earl Waldegrave (my toy,wikipedia). Husband of Maria, who later married William, grandson of George II. Very briefly prime-minister.
