Died on this day in 1459 aged 73 Stephen , Count Palatine of Simmern-Zweibrucken (my toy,wikipedia). Brother of Margaret, grand mother of Margaret who married Henry VI. Stephen was buried in the Cathedral of the Teutonic Knights in Meisenheim. Wikipedia fails to have an "in popular culture" note for the Teutonic Knights... I mostly remember them from Alexander Nevski.

Born on this day in 1313 Thomas de Beauchamp , 11th Earl of Warwick (my toy,wikipedia). Great-great-grand-father of Anne, wife of Richard III. Thomas was one of the founding knights of the Order of the Garter.
