It may hav e had some astrologicalsignificance, perhaps in relation to the greatconjunction of Jupiter and Saturn on 28 April, which,since previous such conjunctions had coincided with theperiods of Christ and Charlemagne, was widely expected tobring great changes to empires and natural disasters: M.Aston, "The fiery trigon conjunction", Isis61 (1970),pp. 158-87.
