History Trivia

On September 7 70 AD the Romans sacked Jerusalem, leaving only the "Wailing Wall" intact. In 1191 Richard I of England defeated Saladin at the Battle of Arsuf, ending the sultan's aura of invincibility. In 1303 Philip IV of France had Pope Boniface VIII seized at his palace at Anagni. The Pope was quickly freed but died soon thereafter and in 1533, Queen Elizabeth I, daughter of Henry VIII and Anne Boleyn was born.
