All dates are converted to new style (year starting on Jan 1st) and shown as year - month - day.
For example 17360726 means 26 July 1736.
The new year for the English-speaking world then became 1 January, and the discrepancy between dates, which had grown from eleven to twelve days, was resolved when Parliament declared that 2 September 1752 was to be followed immediately by 14 September 1752.
21 Dec 2007 - Queen Elizabeth II has reigned longer than Queen Victoria
