Died on this day in 1605 aged 53 Edward Stafford (my toy,wikipedia). Step-son of Mary Boleyn, sister of Anne, wife of Henry VIII. Edward was an MP and was sent to France as a diplomat. He was a *very bad* diplomat and took money from both the French and the Spanish to pass on information to them and to not pass on information he should have been to England. His wife was called Robertsa which is not a name I was previously aware of.

Born on this day in 1999 to Daniel Chatto and Lady Sarah Armstrong-Jones, Arthur Chatto (my toy,wikipedia). Great-grandson of George VI. Today is Arthur's 17th birthday, happy birthday Arthur. Presumably he is still attending Westminster Cathedral choir school, he is currently 23rd in line to the throne, which might be the closest anyone called Arthur has been in a while.
