Died on this day in 1168 aged 69 Thierry Metz , Count of Flanders (my toy,wikipedia). Husband of Sibylla; sister of Geoffrey; husband of Matilda who was never Queen. Thierry met his wife while on pilgrimage in Jerusalem (her father was King of Jerusalem at the time). He spent quite a lot of time on pilgrimage or Crusade, Flanders got invaded whilst he was away at one point (but his wife retaliated and chased the invaders off).

Born on this day in 1433 to Peter Aviz , Duke of Coimba and Isabella of Urgell, James of Coimba (my toy,wikipedia). Great-grand-son of John of Gaunt (son of Edward III). James was a Portuguese Infante and a Bishop and Cardinal in the Roman Catholic church.
