  On this day in history

Today in 1504 12 year-old future king Henry VIII was invested as Prince of Wales and exactly 12 years later his wife Catherine of Aragon gave birth to the future Queen Mary. The first opera was performed in America and Mussorgsky's "Boris Gudunov" premiered in St. Petersburg. Mark Twain's "Huckleberry Finn" and John Bunyan's "Pilgrim's Progress" were published. The Planet Pluto was discovered. A huge meteorite fell in Nebraska. The Emmys were first presented. Celebrating birthdays (somewhere) are Niccolo Paganini, Bloody Mary (Queen Mary I), Sholem Aleichem, Andres Segovia, Len Deighton, Yoko Ono, Milos Forman and Toni Morrison. Died today: Martin Luther, Michelangelo Czar Nicholas I and Gentleman Jim Corbett.
