History Trivia

March 6,1454 Thirteen Years' War: Delegates of the Prussian Confederation pledged allegiance to King Casimir IV of Poland who agreed to commit his forces in aiding the Confederation's struggle for independence from the Teutonic Knights. 1475 Michelangelo Buonarrotti was born. 1619 Cyrano de Bergerac was born. The real Cyrano was a soldier, duellist, dramatist and satirist, and inspired several romantic legends, the most famous of them Edmund Rostand's play. While the fictional and factual Cyrano share some traits, including a large nose, much of the legend is pure speculation.
