Whose Birthday Is It? June 19, 2021

Wallis Simpson (1896) Simpson was an American socialite for whom English King Edward VIII voluntarily abdicated the throne. Their relationship caused a furor in England because the Church of England at the time did not allow people with living ex-spouses to marry, and, as king, Edward was also head of the church. Simpson’s two ex-husbands were still alive when she married Edward on June 3, 1937, just six months after he relinquished his title. How did Wallis and Edward spend the rest of their lives together? More…

Whose Birthday Is It? June 18, 2021

Grand Duchess Anastasia Nikolaevna of Russia (1901) The youngest daughter of Tsar Nicholas II of Russia, Anastasia was allegedly murdered at age 17 along with her parents and siblings during the Russian Revolution. After the family’s execution, rumors swirled that Anastasia had managed to survive. The appearance of several imposters further fueled these rumors, as did the discovery of her family’s burial site in 1991 with two bodies missing. Has anyone been able to conclusively prove that Anastasia was indeed killed with the rest of her family? More…

Whose Birthday Is It? June 15, 2021

Ion Victor Antonescu (1882) Antonescu was dictator of Romania during World War II when his country was part of the Axis. He had a close relationship with Adolf Hitler, who lauded the Romanian’s “breadth of vision.” Antonescu ordered the 1941 Odessa Massacre that claimed the lives of at least 25,000 Jews, though some estimates suggest an even higher death toll. In 1944, Antonescu was overthrown in a coup and later convicted of war crimes and executed. In his final letter to his wife, what did Antonescu encourage her to do? More…
