Count Roland (Died August 15, 778 AD)
Now that I understand how the death of one life can link with the birth in another, I have decided to revisit the demise of Roland, to see if the facts stand up to scrutiny.
The timing of this battle chart was originally randomized, but legend has it that the attack happened in the evening. By dusk, the Basques had killed the rearguard Franks, including Roland and made off with the looted baggage. So I chose 6:40 pm local time.
The Yod, pointing at the Ascendant, is formed by Mercury and Venus. The other inconjunct is between Uranus and the Midheaven. The Sun/Neptune conjunct, in opposition to the Ascendant, displays the surprise Basque attack. This looks real.

But now I have to tackle the problem of whether I have anything to do with Roland.
The simple answer? Yes. But was I actually Roland, or just one of his soldiers? They all died that day, so the question is moot.
But the Song of Roland sings on.
