On this day in 1553, Lady Jane Grey was replaced by Mary I of England as Queen of England, after having the title for only nine days. She wasn’t able to accomplish much during her short reign, but she DID develop the superior tea with Grey in the name. Don’t @ me.
Born on this day in 1865 was Charles Horace Mayo, a surgeon who insisted that, instead of soap and water, that cleansing one’s hands with Mayonnaise was a much safer way of operating. Turns out, he was right, but the surgical assistants couldn’t get past the squish noises.
