Died on this day in 1418 aged 17 Henry Beaufort , 2nd Earl of Somerset (my toy,wikipedia). Grandson of John of Gaunt. At the age of 17 he went off to fight in the Hundred Years War and didn't come back. Stupid war.

Born on this day in 1609 to King Henry IV of France and Marie de'Medici, Henrietta of France (my toy,wikipedia). Wife of Charles I. Henrietta didn't have the easiest time as Queen, she was Catholic and when she arrived she didn't speak English well. She spent the interregnum in France and returned to England with the restoration although she later went back to France which she claimed had better weather.
