  ;Note=Sandringham House, Norfolk, GB, 1952 {d}
His Majesty King George VI (Albert Frederick Arthur George Windsor, formerly von
  Wettin) (14 December 1895 - 6 February 1952) was the third British monarch of the
  House of Windsor, reigning from 11 December 1936 until his death. As well as being
  the King of the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland and the British
  dominions beyond the seas, George VI was the last Emperor of India (until 15 August
  1947) and the last King to reign over Ireland (until 1949).
  George VI succeeded the throne unexpectedly after the abdication of his brother, King
  Edward VIII.
  George VI was born on 14 December 1895 at York Cottage, on the Sandringham
  Estate, Norfolk. His father was Prince George, Duke of York (later King George V), the
  second but eldest surviving son of Edward VII and Alexandra of Denmark.
                                      6 februari
   His mother was Her Royal Highness The Duchess of York (later Queen Mary)
   Prince George & Lady Elizabeth B owes-Lyon were married on 26 April 1923 in
   Westminster Abbey. The Duke and Duchess of York had two children:
   * Elizabeth II (born April 21, 1926)
   * Princess Margaret (August 21, 1930 - February 9, 2002).
   On January 20, 1936, King George V died and Prince Edward ascended the throne as
   Edward VIII. As he had no children, Albert was now the heir presumptive to the throne
   until the unmarried Edward VIII had any legitimate children.
   However, Edward VIII abdicated the throne on December 11, 1936, in order to marry
   his love, Wallis Warfield Simpson. Thus Prince Albert, Duke of York, was now king
   Upon the abdication, on 11 December 1936, the Duke was proclaimed Sovereign,
   assuming the style and title King George VI to emphasize continuity with his father and
   restore confidence in the monarchy. George VI's coronation took place on 12 May
   1937, the intended date of Edward's coronation.
   On 6 February 1952, George VI died at Sandringham House in Norfolk.
Britain, 1952, Feb. 6 - KING GEORGE VI DIED. His daughter Elizabeth, who was on a
   visit to East Africa, flew back to take the oath as QUEEN ELIZABETH II (Feb. 8).

The first railroad charter in the United States was issued February 6, 1815 to the New
  Jersey Railroad Company on behalf of John Stevens and others. Based on turnpike
  charters, it allowed the company to build between New Brunswick and Trenton, and
  became a model for railroad charters in the future. That company never did anything,
  but the idea evolved into the later NJRR, chartered in 1832.
February 6, In 1815, John Stevens received the first railroad charter in the United States.

   boringen te verrichten en in 1881 toestemming kreeg voor grondaankopen tussen
   Dover en Folkestone.
   De op 12 september 1881 opgerichte Submarine Continental Railway Company Ltd
   nam de rechten van de South Eastern over en begon met een proeftunnel die
   uiteindelijk 1920 m uit de kust de zee in liep.
   Het werk werd in 1883 stopgezet, voornamelijk om redenen van militaire aard.
   In 1875 verkregen de Channel Tunnel Company en de Franse Submarine Railway
   Company volmachten om een proeftunnel te boren en zij kwamen vanaf Sangatte aan
   de Franse kust tot een tunnel van 2414 m.
   In 1887 werd de naam van de Engelse groep gewijzigd in Channel Tunnel Company.
   In juli 1957 werd de Channel Tunnel Study Group opgericht teneinde de verschillende
   economische, technische en verkeerskundige aspecten te coördineren.
   In maart 1960 bracht zij een rapport uit waarin een tweesporige spoorwegtunnel als
   oplossing werd aanbevolen.
   Op 6 februari 1964 besloten de Britse en Franse regering het project door te zetten.
   Het meetwerk was in oktober 1965 voltooid.
   In januari 1975 besloot de Britse regering eenzijdig het Chunnel-project stop te zetten.

  De eerste Waitangi Day werd pas in 1934 gevierd.
  premier Norman Kirk kondigde op 6 februari 1973 aan dat Waitangi Day vanaf 1974

   [Wikipedia Daily Article] February 6
The Treaty of Waitangi (M?ori: Te Tiriti o Waitangi) was signed on February 6, 1840 at
   Waitangi in the Bay of Islands, New Zealand.
   It was signed by a representative of the British Crown, and M?ori chiefs from the North
   Island. The British Resident, James Busby, had earlier convinced some 35 of these
   chiefs to declare independence as the Confederation of the United Tribes of New
   Zealand. From the British point of view, 'The Treaty', as New Zealanders often call it,
   justified making New Zealand a British colony.
   Today it is generally considered the founding point of New Zealand as a nation.

  ;Note=1808, koning Lodewijk Napoleon, verving Koninklijke Orde van de Unie {d}
De Orde van de Unie is een ridderorde die in 1806 werd gesticht door Lodewijk Napoleon,
  koning van Holland. .. Bij terugkomst in Den Haag stichtte Lodewijk Napoleon op 12
  december 1806 niet één, maar twee ridderorden. Zij kregen de namen "Groote order
  van de Unie" en "Koninglijke Orde van Verdiensten". De "Grote order" zou dertig
  "Groot-Kruissen" tellen en de Orde van Verdiensten zou vijftig commandeurs en
  driehonderd ridders tellen. Op 1 januari 1807 werden de eerste ridders in die laatste
  orde benoemd. .. De wispelturige Lodewijk verenigde beide orden op 13 februari 1807
  en noemde de zo ontstane orde "Koninklijke Orde van Holland". Deze werd op 23
  november van datzelfde jaar de "Koninklijke Orde van de Unie", die op 6 februari 1808
  "Koninklijke Orde der Unie" ging heten. .. Thorbecke brak zijn staf over de juridische
  gang van zaken. Hij meende dat Lodewijk Napoleon niet de "Koninklijke weg" had
  gevolgd maar de orde in een "geheim decreet" had ingesteld. Dat misverstand werd
  door andere schrijvers overgenomen maar door Van Zelm van Eldik weerlegd. De
  "Hoogmogende" volksvertegenwoordigers hebben op 12 december 1806 het
  Koninklijke voorstel in een besloten zitting van het voormalig "Wetgevend Ligaam", dat
  ook "Hunne Hoogmogendheden" heette, goedgekeurd. In zijn koninklijke boodschap en
  considerans stelde Lodewijk Napoleon vast dat "Holland onder de Monarchiën de
  eenigste is, in welke geene Ridder-Orde bestaat". .. De wet van 12 december 1806
  voorzag in de benoeming van een kapittel dat uit de drie oudste commandeurs en
  ridders moest bestaan. .. Op diezelfde 12e december werd vastgelegd dat de Orde van
  de Unie een Grootkanselier met de Orde van Verdienste zou delen. .. Op 16 december
  1806 werd in een decreet de "Groote Raad van de Orde van de Unie" gesticht. Op 14
  februari werd zij alweer vervangen door het kapittel. In strijd met zijn belofte aan de
  keizer had de Hollandse koning in het eerste decreet pensioenen, of jaargelden, aan de
  ridders en commandeurs beloofd. In het tweede decreet werd ook de mogelijkheid tot
  het uitbetalen van pensioenen aan de grootkruisen genoemd. .. Op 14 februari 1807
  werd er, naast het kapittel, ook een Raad van Administratie van de Orde van

In 1537 the Master of the Rolls called the attention of the royal commissioners to the fact
   that many of the Irish regarded the Pope as the temporal sovereign of Ireland and the
   King of England only as Lord of Ireland by virtue of the Papal authority, and advised
   them that Henry VIII should be proclaimed King of Ireland by an Act of Parliament. This
   advice was approved by Staples, Bishop of Meath (1538), and was endorsed by the
   Lord Deputy Anthony St. Leger and council in a letter addressed to Henry VIII in
   December 1540. The suggestion was accepted by the king, who empowered St. Leger
   to summon a Parliament to give it effect (1541). The bill was passed by both houses
   and the Lord Deputy "consented" (i.e., gave the royal assent) to it on 18 Jun 1541. On
   Sunday, 19 Jun 1541, "An Act that the King of England, his Heirs and Successors, be
   Kings of Ireland" (33 Henry VIII, c.1) was solemnly proclaimed in the Irish Parliament. ..
   The heralds at Greenwich proclaimed Henry VIII by this title on 7 Jul 1541, but Henry
   was not satisfied. He thought that it was derogatory to his honor and to his hereditary
   claim to Ireland that he should accept a title which had been offered to him by the Irish
   Parliament; and he insisted that there should be verbal changes in the title to make it
   clear that it was not a Parliamentary one. The Proclamation was issued on 23 Jan 1542
   and proclaimed in London on 6 Feb 1542 making the title official. It also made a
   provision that all documents that do not contain the change and are dated before 30
   Apr 1542 are valid. .. The final confirmation of Henry's titles was done by passing "An
   Act for the ratification of the King's Majesty's style" (35 Henry VIII c.3; the session of
   Parliament began on 14 Jan 1544 after prorogation, and ended in March 1544).

   De spanning tussen Rusland en Japan over de invloed in Korea en Mantsjoerije leidde
   op 6 februari 1904 tot het verbreken van de diplomatieke betrekkingen.
   Twee dagen later begonnen de Japanners, zonder eerst de oorlog te verklaren, aan
   een verrassingsaanval op het Russische Zuidzee-eskader.
   In de eerste echte slag in de Russisch-Japanse oorlog, de slag in de Gele Zee (10
   augustus 1904), wist admiraal Heihachiro Togo te verhinderen dat de Russen Port
   Arthus verlieten en Wladiwostok bereikten. De beslissende slag bij Tsushima op 27 mei
   1905 vormde een bewijs dat 'één grote slag' voldoende kon zijn.
   De rampzalige gevolgen dwongen de Russen terug naar de onderhandelingstafel.

  Summit. Although it was completed on October 28, 1942 and its completion was
  celebrated at Soldier's Summit on November 21 (and broadcast by radio, the exact
  outdoor temperature censored due to wartime concerns), the "highway" was not usable
  by general vehicles until 1943.

1948, February 6 First radio-controlled airplane flown.

1948, February 06 - 1st radio-controlled airplane flown.
The earliest examples of electronically guided model aircraft were hydrogen-filled model
  airships of the late 19th century. They were flown as a music hall act around theater
  auditoriums using a basic form of spark-emitted radio signal. In 1920s, the Royal
  Aircraft Establishment of Britain built and tested the Larynx, a monoplane with a 100-
  mile (160 km) range powered by a Lynx engine. It was not until the 1930s that the
  British came up with the Queen Bee, a modified de Havilland Tiger Moth, and similar
  target aircraft.

6 Februari 1951 : Leopold's eerste dochter bij Prinses Lilian die de naam Marie-Christine
   draagt wordt geboren.
Marie Christine Daphné Astrid Elisabeth Léopoldine (6 februari 1951) is het tweede kind
   van Leopold III van België en prinses Lilian Baels.
Princess Marie-Christine of Belgium (Marie-Christine Daphné Astrid Elisabeth Léopoldine,
   born 6 February 1951 in Laeken, Belgium) is a member of the Belgian royal family and
   a half-sister of King Albert II of the Belgians. Her father was King Leopold III of the
   Belgians, and her mother was his second wife, the former Lilian Baels.

06.2.1959: Jack Kilby filed the patent for the first integrated circuit.
  [Wikipedia Daily Article] February 6
The integrated circuit was first conceived by a radar scientist, Geoffrey W.A. Dummer
  (born 1909), working for the Royal Radar Establishment of the British Ministry of
  Defence, and published in Washington, D.C. on May 7, 1952.
  Dummer unsuccessfully attempted to build such a circuit in 1956.
  The first integrated circuits were manufactured independently by two scientists: Jack
  Kilby of Texas Instruments filed a patent for a "Solid Circuit" made of germanium on
  February 6, 1959. Kilby received patents U.S. Patent 3138743 , U.S. Patent 3138747 ,
  U.S. Patent 3261081 , and U.S. Patent 3434015 .
  Robert Noyce of Fairchild Semiconductor was awarded a patent for a more complex
  "unitary circuit" made of Silicon on April 25, 1961.

Jack St. Clair Kilby (November 8, 1923 - June 20, 2005) is a Nobel Prize laureate in
   physics in 2000 for his invention of the integrated circuit in 1958 while working at Texas
   Instruments (TI). He is also the inventor of the handheld calculator and thermal printer.
   In the summer of 1958, Kilby was a newly employed engineer at Texas Instruments
   who did not yet have the right to a summer vacation. He spent the summer working on
   the problem in circuit design that was commonly called the "tyranny of numbers" and
   finally came to the conclusion that manufacturing the circuit components in mass in a
   single piece of semiconductor material could provide a solution. On September 12 he
   presented his findings to the management of Texas Instruments: he showed them a
   piece of germanium with an oscilloscope attached, pressed a switch, and the
   oscilloscope showed a continuous sine wave, proving that his integrated circuit worked
   and thus that he solved the problem. A patent for a "Solid Circuit made of Germanium",
   the first integrated circuit, was filed on February 6, 1959.

Geïntegreerde schakeling (van het Engelse Integrated Circuit (IC)) is de officiële
  Nederlandse naam voor wat ook wel een chip wordt genoemd. .. De eerste werkende
  geïntegreerde schakeling werd op 12 september 1958 door Jack Kilby van Texas
  Instruments gepresenteerd. Vier maanden later deed Robert Noyce van Fairchild
  Semiconductor een soortgelijke uitvinding. Hoewel Noyce later was dan Kilby werd de
  patentenstrijd uiteindelijk in 1969 in het voordeel van Noyce beslist.
June 23, In 1964, a U.S. patent was issued to Jack S. Kilby for his invention of
  "Miniaturized Electronic Circuits" now known as integrated circuits (No. 3,138,743, filed
  6 Feb 1959), which he assigned to his employer, Texas Instruments, where he worked.
  With it, he created a new way of reducing the space taken up by an electronic circuit by
  which "all components of an entire electronic circuit are integrated into the body of
  semiconductor material," for which he used germanium. Geoffrey W.A. Dummer also
  had the concept years earlier, but never completed a working device. A few months
  after Kilby's demonstration in 1964, an IC device in an improved form was
  independently invented by Robert Noyce at another company. Eventually, the two
  companies agreed to cross-license their patents.

June 26, In 1976, the CN tower in Toronto, Canada, the world's tallest self-supporting
  structure, opened to the public. At a height of 1815 feet 5 inches it is the tallest free-
  standing structure in the world. The tower construction began 6 Feb 1973 and was
  completed 40 months later in 1976. The three legs and central core were built hollow to
  ensure flexibility in winds, using reinforced concrete and post-tensioned steel. In 1995,
  the CN Tower was classified as one of the Seven Wonders of the Modern World by the
  American Society of Civil Engineers.
