Died on this day in 1479 aged 61 Catherine of Cleves (my toy,wikipedia). Mother of Mary, wife of James II of Scotland, and thus ancestor of James VI & I. Also brother of John, great-grand-father of Anne, wife of Henry VIII. Catherine acted as regent for her husband while he went on crusade, and later helped their son overthrow his father.

Born on this day in 1637 to Frederick Prince of Orange and Amalia of Solms-Braunfels, Henriette of Nassau (my toy,wikipedia). Sister of William, father of William II and III. She married a German prince as part of her father's plan to maintain peace with Germany, the marriage seems to have been successful.
