Forums » Forum Games » Events that happened on your Birthday(in history)

I've just come up with this considering it'll be my birthday on the Tuesday following this week(21st) that if you want to join in do your research if you want or whatever it doesn't matter but if any interesting events happened in history on your birthday(be it births, deaths, wars, coronations of monarchs or etc that you think are interesting or just surprised you to find out happened on the date you were born(be it in the past or even on the day you were born) feel free to share them down below. Only rule that is to keep said amount of events to at least two-three events(we don't want an entire thread full of lists that span like every century on this day thing just give the year followed by the event)

I'll start, on my birthday in history August 21st: 1192: Minamoto no Yoritomo becomes de-facto ruler of Japan(Traditional Japanese date is given as July 12th 1192 though), 1906:Friz Freleng one of the creators of Looney/Loony Tunes/Toons is born.

((Little update to the rules for this Forum Game I'd like to add here, you can add more events that happened on your birthday here if you want just make sure you don't clog the thread up with only your posts let others have a chance we don't want an entire page full of thread posts by one single person. On the other hand that doesn't mean your restricted from posting more events just don't overdo it for lack of a better word.))
