Medieval Timeline: Today in Medieval History

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

  1. That’s true. Alfred was the only “English” king to be called The Great. Canute was a Dane, and thus is not considered an English king.
