It happened today - February 18, 2016
There's a French expression "boire la grande tasse" meaning to drown. I do not know if George Plantagenet would find it funny. I say that because (a) I am pedantic and (b) it was on this date, February 19, that he was executed by being drowned in a butt of Malmsey wine.
