Barely got this one in before the end of St. Patrick’s day.
On this day, March 17th, in medieval history:
- 460 (?) – Presumed death of St. Patrick.
- 1040 – Harold Harefoot dies. Harold was the son of Canute the Great and King of England from 1035 – 1040.
- 1473 – Birth of King James IV of Scotland
