– Prince William and Kate Middleton royal wedding date coincides with Hitler’s wedding anniversary – and more events in history that happened on April 29th (Mirror):
The wedding of Prince William and Kate Middleton will be a joyous occasion but it also marks the 66th anniversary of the bizarre and macabre union of Adolf Hitler and Eva Braun as the Third Reich collapsed.
The Nazi dictator married his long-time mistress deep in the Fuehrer’s bunker below Berlin as the Russians closed in. The pair committed suicide together the next day.

The British Royals since 1714 are coming from the House of Hannover and the House of Saxe-Coburg-Gotha. The Royals are ‘really’ Germans.
The royal family’s official name, or lack thereof, became a problem during World War I, when people began to mutter that Saxe-Coburg-Gotha sounded far too German. King George V and his family needed a new English-sounding name. After considering everything from Plantagenet to Tudor-Stuart to simply England, the king and his advisors chose the name Windsor.
