Sunday:

Died on this day in 1539 aged 0 John of Austria (my toy,wikipedia). Great grand son of Ferdinand and Isabella, parents of Catherine, wife of Henry VIII. Died tragically young, does not merit own wiki page.

Born on this day in 1448 to Louis , Duke of Savoy and Anne of Cyprus, Marie of Savoy (my toy,wikipedia). Wife of Louis, brother of Jacquetta, mother of Elizabeth, wife of Edward IV. Marie was Louis' second wife, one of his sons by his first wife was married to Marie's sister. There is no way at all that that would be weird...

Today:

Died on this day in 1306 aged 58 Robert II, Duke of Burgundy (my toy,wikipedia). Uncle of Marie, mother of Margaret, wife of Edward I. Ended the practice of dividing the duchy up between the dukes children, instead leaving the whole place to the next Duke.

Born on this day in 1551 Maria of Bavaria (my toy,wikipedia). Mother of Margaret, wife of Philip, son of Philip, wife of Mary I (but Philip was his son by a different wife). Maria married her Uncle (I'm sure the Pope would not have approved!)
