Steal This Post Thursday Meme (better late than never!)

I got this idea from Michele, who stole it from Ethel.
Here are the directions:

"Go to Wikipedia and do a search for your birthday (day and month only, exclude the year).

Post three facts, two births and one death on your blog including the years."

Here are my results (for Jan. 23):
Facts:
1533 - Anne Boleyn, mistress of Henry VIII of England, discovers herself pregnant.
1943 - Duke Ellington plays at Carnegie Hall in New York City for the first time.
Births:
1832 - Edouard Manet, French artist (d. 1883)
1957 - Princess Caroline of Monaco
Death:
1976 - Paul Robeson, American actor, singer, and social activist (b. 1898)
