In 1558, Elizabeth I aged 25, ascends English throne upon death of her half sister Queen “Bloody” Mary.
Queen Elizabeth II is the male-line great-granddaughter of Edward VII, who inherited the crown from his mother, Queen Victoria. His father, Victoria’s consort, was Albert of Saxe-Coburg and Gotha; hence Queen Elizabeth is a patrilineal descendant of Albert’s family, the German princely House of Wettin.
World War II 1940: In response to the levelling of Coventry by the German Luftwaffe two days before, the Royal Air Force bombs Hamburg.
On this day in 1720, Anne Bonny, Mary Read, and John Rackham are captured by Capt. Jonathan Barnet and brought to Spanish Town, Jamaica, for trial.
Anne Bonny (unknown, possibly 1697 – unknown, possibly April 1782) was an Irish pirate operating in the Caribbean, and one of several noted women in piracy. The little that is known of her life comes largely from Captain Charles Johnson’s A General History of the Pyrates.
On this day in 1908, Albert Einstein proposed his Theory of Quantum Light.
Alongside Max Planck’s work on quanta of heat Einstein proposed one of the most shocking idea in twentieth century physics: we live in a quantum universe, one built out of tiny, discrete chunks of energy and matter. Next, in April and May, Einstein published two papers.
