    Simeon I of Bulgaria died on this day 1097 years ago, aged 63. - Simeon was the son of Boris I, and was not expected to take the throne as he had an older brother, Vladimir; as such his father planned for him to become a church official, sending him to Constantinople to receive theological education in 878. He would return 10 years later to establish a monastery. - For political reasons, Boris would oust Vladimir (Boris had abdicated to become a monk, then Vladimir would reintroduce pagan religion into Bulgaria), had him blinded, and then put Simeon on the throne in 893. - Simeon's reign saw a literal trade war initiated by the Byzantines (using the Magyars as a proxy) in 895, and would continue fighting their forces throughout, most notably a war that began in 913 after Emperor Alexander stopped paying Bulgaria an annual tribute. One notable development of this latter war came in 924, when Simeon would send diplomats to seek assistance from the Fatimid Caliphate, hoping they would send their navy in to help him take Constantinople; these diplomats were captured and imprisoned by Byzantine forces. - Simeon would die from heart failure after 34 years as king, being succeeded by his son Peter I. No Bulgarian monarch would take the name 'Simeon' for a thousand years, until Simeon II in 1943.

    Edmund I of England died on this day 1078 years ago, aged 26. - Edmund was a son of king Edward ("The Elder"), who died when he was about 4 years old. His older brother Athelstan would be Edward's successor, and Edmund himself would succeed him after he died without an heir in 939. - Edmund's reign was largely defined by pushing back against Viking advances in the British Isles, and would regain English land in the north following the death of Olaf Guthfrithson in 941. He would also seize York from the Vikings in 944. - Edmund would also issue legal reform during his rule, which included controlling blood feuds by having the murderer pay the victim's family, and ordering local communities to assist tracking down farmers' livestock stolen by rustlers. - Edmund was killed while fighting a thief at a feast celebrating Augustine of Canterbury; some historians may believe this could have been a politically-charged assassination. Edmund would be succeeded as king by his brother Eadred.

    Charles Nelson Reilly died on this day 17 years ago, aged 76. - Reilly was a survivor of the 1944 Hartford Circus Fire. The event gave him PTSD which made him afraid of being in an audience, and when he did he often sat near the exit of the room. - Reilly began acting in 1957 in the film A Face in the Crowd, and his breakout role came in 1960 in Broadway's Bye Bye Birdie as an understudy for Dick Van Dyke when he wasn't able to perform due to scheduling conflicts. He would star in more iconic plays that included How to Succeed in Business Without Really Trying and Hello, Dolly!, both of which earning him Tony Award nominations. - On TV, Reilly would often appear as a panelist on game shows, most notably Match Game and the '80s revivals of Password. - In later years, Reilly took to voice acting, often in Don Bluth films- these roles included Carface's lackey Killer in All Dogs Go to Heaven, the Grand Duke of Owls' nephew Hutch in Rock-a-Doodle, and King Llort in A Troll in Central Park. His most memorable voice role, however, was as the Dirty Bubble in the SpongeBob episode "Mermaid Man and Barnacle Boy II": - Reilly had respiratory issues in the last few years of his life, and he died of pneumonia. In 2009, Weird Al Yankovic would posthumously make a song about him:
