On February 12, 1912, the last Emperor of China signed over his power to the new government, and on April 15th, 1912 the titanic sank. Only a couple months apart. Coincidence? I think not.

Ethelred the Unready, one of the worst kings in the history of Britain, sometimes had his name spelled "Aethelred". Rearranging those letters produces the denotion, "The Leader".

The day after Barack Obama won the 2008 Presidential election, the lottery was held in Illinois.
The winning numbers were 6-6-6.
The miniseries "The Bible" had a movie made out of it, which removed a character.
The character? Satan.
The reason?
He looked exactly like Barack Obama!

In Monza, Italy, King Umberto I, went to a small restaurant for dinner, accompanied by his aide-de-camp, General Emilio Ponzia- Vaglia. When the owner took King Umberto’s order, the King noticed that he and the restaurant owner were virtual doubles, in face and in build. Both men began discussing the striking resemblances between each other and found many more similarities.
1. Both men were born on the same day, of the same year, (March 14th, 1844).
2. Both men had been born in the same town.
3. Both men married a woman with same name, Margherita.
4. The restauranteur opened his restaurant on the same day that King Umberto was crowned King of Italy.
5. On the 29th July 1900, King Umberto was informed that the restauranteur had died that day in a mysterious shooting accident, and as he expressed his regret, he was then assassinated by an anarchist in the crowd.
