Evening! Just a couple things for today!!

Today in 1674, Ernest Augustus, Duke of York and Albany, and younger brother to George I of the United Kingdom was born today in Osnabruck, Germany. He was a military man, and spent time as a soldier to Leopold I, Holy Roman Emperor fighting in the Nine Years War, and the War of Spanish Succession.
And in not-so-dead royalty, Marie-Chantal, (titular) Crown Princess of Greece, was born in 1968 today in London.
And today marks the death of King Phillip IV of Spain in 1665. Phillip was king during the challenging Thirty Years War, and saw the Spanish Empire at its largest, but also saw it beginning to decline.
Have an awesome day everyone!!
