29/2/1584The 29th of February makes its first appearance as the additional day of every leap year. This addition was decided in 1581 by Pope Gregory XIII, who also deducted 11 days, naming the 4/10/1582 as 15/10/1582, inaugurating the diary which took his name. This extra day of February already exists since 45 BC, according to the adjustments made by Julius Cesar. The only difference was that this day was inserted between the 24th and 25th day causing the leap year to be named also bissextile as Romans had to accept sixth calends twice
