From Ted Hewitt's Group:
Today in history:
AC 43, Octavian, Antony and Lepidus form the triumvirate of Rome. This leads to the Pax Romana, in which our Saviour was born!
AC 8, Horace Latin poet & satirist, dies (birth date unknown). In his Ninth Eclogue, by the Grace of God, he predicted the birth of our Saviour!
AD 399, His Holiness, St Anastasius I begins his reign as Pope.
AD 511, Clovis, king of the Franks, dies and his kingdom is divided between his four sons. A mistake, it delayed the Kingdom of France, Eldest Daughter of the Church for centuries. Vive la France!
AD 1095, In Clermont, France, Pope Urban II makes an appeal for warriors to relieve Jerusalem. God grant us a new Urban who will preach the Crusade against Islam!
AD 1942 French navy at Toulon, under the government of the « colloborator» Petain, scuttles ships & subs so Nazis don't take them. In contrast to the traitor and perjuror de Gaulle!
AD 1967, De Gaulle says 'non' to Britain - again. Communist, traitor and perjuror, he wanted to make sure that Europe was never a Great Power!
