  On this day in history

Czar Nicholas II and his whole family including (despite claims) Anastasia were murdered today in 1918. Also killed today: Czar Peter III (1762) and Charlotte Corday (1793). Camilla Parker Bowles, now Duchess of Cornwall, David Hasselhoff, Diahann Carroll, Nicolette Larson and Phyllis Diller celebrate birthdays. On this day in 709 BC, Chinese chroniclers saw a solar eclipse and wrote about it for the first time in history. The first photo of a star was taken today and in 1994 astronomers observed huge cosmic explosions on Jupiter. Carrier installed his first air conditioner in 1902, and the British Royals changed their names to Windsor from the Germanic Saxe-Coburg-Gotha in 1917. Martin Luther had an epiphany in a rainstorm. Disneyland opened in Anaheim, CA.
