1716 - Cervantes
echsdoc
The Spanish have announced the likely discovery of the bones of Cervantes, lost for four hundred years. So the body of the greatest Spanish writer will be reburied with honor, when all is said and done. I noticed that the several articles I read about the discovery all left out the strangest detail of his death. Cervantes died on the exact same day as Shakespeare in England. Same month, day, year. That is about the most amazing coincidence possible. The greatest writers of two different cultures die on the same day. (Don't get picky about Julian and Gregorian calendars, etc.) 23 April 1616.
