William IX, Duke of Aquitaine has not been mentioned in this thread before this week. I think the one year difference is regarding one source lists him as dying in 1126 and another as in 1127.


Hence, Sir Creep mentioned 890 years ago and Rocky thought it was 889.


The two death dates in full are:

10th February 1126

11th February 1127

Sir C, I had Duke of Aquitaine at 889 years but could be a calendar thing as discussed here times past.

There's no need to pander to SC's 5 year rule, as that is entirely his own invention.

Would you could lay off that, mate. I make no demands you are free to post what you like, including 1 month anniversaries for all I care.
Having no rules means you can post literally every dead person's name every single year. If that's what you want to do, enjoy yourself using your free hand to mouse click. My last words on the matter.


Maybe not recently...







There's no such thing as a 'month anniversary', the word anniversary coming from the Latin annus (year) and vertere (to turn). The words 'mensiversary' (Latin mensis = month) and 'unciaversary' (Latin uncia = twelth part) have been suggested as alternatives. (Source)
