History Trivia - Saint-Nicolas Flood wreaks havoc on Northern Dutch coast

December 6

1196 the Northern Dutch coast was flooded; known as the Saint-Nicolas Flood, resulted in widespread damage and death. 

1421 Henry VI was born. Henry VI was a child when he came to the throne on the death of his father Henry V. His weakness as a ruler and his occasional displays of mental instability exacerbated the Wars of the Roses (dynastic civil wars for the throne of England fought between supporters of two rival branches of the royal House of Plantagenet: the houses of Lancaster and York).
