Died on this day in 1333 aged 72 King Wladyslaw I of Poland (my toy,wikipedia). Great great grand father of Anne, wife of Richard II. Known as "the elbow high" because he was short. Wlodyslaw had to fight his relatives to get to be King and then he had to fight the Teutonic Knights. So that all sounds like fun then.

Born on this day in 1635 to Thomas of Savoy and Marie of Bourbon, Eugene , Count of Soissons (my toy,wikipedia). Great grand son of Philip, husband of Mary I. A military man and a diplomat, Eugene was present at the coronation of Charles II as ambassador of France.
