OTD in history

Primrose Day, 19 April, is the anniversary of the death of British statesman and Conservative prime minister Benjamin Disraeli, 1st Earl of Beaconsfield, in 1881, just a few days after the census was taken. He had left office as Prime Minister nearly one year earlier, on 21 April 1880, continuing as leader of the opposition.
Primroses, his favourite flower, are in bloom in England.
