Emperor Xiaozong of Song

Emperor Xiaozong of Song (27 November 1127 – 28 June 1194), personal name Zhao Shen, courtesy name Yuanyong, was the 11th emperor of the Song dynasty in China and the second emperor of the Southern Song dynasty. He started his reign in 1162 when his adoptive father and predecessor, Emperor Gaozong, abdicated and passed the throne to him. Even though Emperor Gaozong became a Taishang Huang ("Retired Emperor") after his abdication, he remained the de facto ruler, so Emperor Xiaozong only fully took over the reins of power in 1187 after Emperor Gaozong's death. After ruling for about a year, Emperor Xiaozong followed in his predecessor's footsteps and abdicated in favour of his third son Zhao Dun (Emperor Guangzong), while he became Taishang Huang and still remained in power until his death in 1194.

He was the first descendant of Emperor Taizu to become emperor.

Guy of Lusignan

Guy of Lusignan (c. 1150 – 18 July 1194) was a French Poitevin knight, son of Hugh VIII of the Lusignan dynasty. He was king of the crusader state of Jerusalem from 1186 to 1192 by right of marriage to Sibylla of Jerusalem, and of Cyprus from 1192 to 1194. Having arrived in the Holy Land (where his brother Amalric was already prominent) at an unknown date, Guy was hastily married to Sibylla in 1180 to prevent a political incident within the kingdom. As the health of his brother-in-law, Baldwin IV, deteriorated, Guy was appointed regent for his stepson by Sibylla, Baldwin V. Baldwin IV died in 1185, followed shortly by Baldwin V in 1186, leading to the succession of Sibylla and Guy to the throne. Guy's reign was marked by increased hostilities with the Ayyubids ruled by Saladin, culminating in the Battle of Hattin in July 1187—during which Guy was captured—and the fall of Jerusalem itself three months later.

Following a year of imprisonment in Damascus, Guy was released by Saladin. After being denied entry to Tyre, one of the last crusader strongholds, by Conrad of Montferrat, Guy besieged Acre in 1189. The siege, during which Guy's wife died, developed into a rallying point for the Third Crusade, led by Philip II of France and Richard I of England. Guy entered a bitter row with Conrad over the kingship of Jerusalem; despite Richard's support for the widower king, Conrad married Sibylla's half-sister Isabella and was elected king by the nobility of the kingdom. Conrad was assassinated by the Hashshashin days after the election; Richard's and Guy's involvement in the incident is suspected, but unproven. Nevertheless, Guy was compensated for the dispossession of his crown by being given lordship of Cyprus in 1192, which Richard had taken from the Byzantine Empire en route to the Levant. Guy ruled the Kingdom of Cyprus until his death in 1194, when he was succeeded by his brother Amalric.

List of monarchs of Sicily

The monarchs of Sicily ruled from the establishment of the County of Sicily in 1071 until the "perfect fusion" in the Kingdom of the Two Sicilies in 1816.

The origin of the Sicilian monarchy are in the Norman conquest of southern Italy occurred between the 11th and 12th century. Sicily, which was ruled as an Islamic emirate for at least two centuries, was invaded in 1071 by Norman House of Hauteville, who conquered Palermo and established a feudal county. The House of Hauteville completed their conquest of Sicily in 1091.

In 1130, the County of Sicily and the County of Apulia, both led by two distinct branches of the House of Hauteville, merged in the Kingdom of Sicily, and Count Roger II was crowned king by Antipope Anacletus II.

Over the centuries, Sicily passed in the hands of several foreign authorities: from 1194 to 1254 was part of the Holy Roman Empire; from 1282 to 1714 became a personal union of the Crown of Aragon; from 1713 to 1720 was a personal union of the Duchy of Savoy and finally, from 1720 to 1735, was one of the crown of the Habsburg Monarchy.

In 1282, after the Sicilian Vespers, the kingdom split in two separated states: the properly named Ultra Sicily (Siciliae ultra Pharum, what means "Sicily over the Strait") and the Hither Sicily (Siciliae citra) or commonly named Kingdom of Naples. The two states stylized themselves always as "Kingdom of Sicily", until the partial unification 1516 when Charles II of Spain inherited both lands as "King of Naples and Sicily". The definitive unification there was in 1816, when Ferdinand IV and III unified the two entities in a single state, the Kingdom of the Two Sicilies.

United Nations Security Council Resolution 1194

United Nations Security Council resolution 1194, adopted unanimously on 9 September 1998, after reaffirming resolutions 687 (1991), 707 (1991), 715 (1991), 1060 (1996), 1115 (1997) and 1154 (1998) concerning Iraq's weapons programme, the Council condemned Iraq's decision to suspend co-operation with the United Nations Special Commission (UNSCOM) and the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA).On 5 August 1998, the Iraqi government announced that it would no longer co-operate with UNSCOM and the IAEA, and therefore sanctions against Iraq would remain. The country had halted all disarmament activities of UNSCOM and refused to co-operate in any activity relating to its nuclear programme. The Council was determined to ensure full compliance by Iraq of its obligations under previous Security Council resolutions, and to allow UNSCOM and the IAEA access to any sites they requested; any attempts to restrict this were unacceptable.

Acting under Chapter VII of the United Nations Charter, the Council condemned the Iraqi non-compliance with previous Security Council resolutions and the memorandum of understanding signed earlier in 1998 and demanded that it withdraw its refusal. It decided not to conduct a review of the sanctions and would not do so until Special Commission and the IAEA were able to conduct the full range of activities within their mandates, including inspections.

YBP 1194

YBP 1194 is a G-type main-sequence star, class G5V, in the open cluster M67 in the constellation Cancer. It is the best solar twin found to date, having the near temperature and mass as our sun. YBP 1194 has a higher metallicity than the Sun. YBP 1194 is .5 billion years younger than the Sun at an age of 4.2 billion years old, but due to the distance, the error bar is high at ±1.6 billion years. On December 19, 2013, it was announced to have an extrasolar planet with a period of 6.9 days, and a high eccentricity of 0.24 with a mass of 0.34 MJ. YBP 1194 is about 2,772 light-years (850 parsecs) from the Sun. YBP 1194 is packed in a small cluster, M67-NGC 2682, with a radius 10 ly, with over 500 other stars. For comparison the Sun has 17 stars at a distance of 10 ly and about 134 stars at a distance of 20 ly.
