October 2 in History

Two quick entries today:

1187: Saladin, legendary Islamic leader, captured Jerusalem from its Christian rulers on this day.

1452: Richard III, the most debated of English kings (whatever the truth, Shakespeare’s play is loads of fun) was born.

In honor of these two anniversaries, I bought two Kindle books:


Richard III
Saladin: Hero of Islam
