FYI...I am not going to post daily royal dates here anymore. At the royalty website I help administer, we have changed from posting the dates on the forum to posting the dates in a post that appears on the home page. If anyone is interested in the daily royal dates, bookmark Unofficial Royalty: Today in Royal History.

There is right now an exhibition of old documents from the archive signed by Alfonso VIII. He had such cool signatures:
