Hello B.D.,

11th February :
1902: King Milan II of Serbia died in Vienna
1905: Premiere of Anton Bruckners 9th Symphony

1919 Friedrich Ebert became first president of the Weimar Republic

1942 The "channel dash" German battle sqaudron escape into the North Sea

1945 End of the Jalta Conference - of immense importance for post-war Europe

France :
1322 Charles IV murdered
1650 Rene Descartes murdered
1858 Bernadette Soubirous sees an apparition of The Virgin Mary in         
1879 Honore Daumier murdered
1911 First night flight above Paris (Pilot Robert Grandseigne)
1925: Aristide Bruant dies in Paris
1926 Paul Bocuse born in Collonges-au-montd'Or
1950 introduction of the guaranteed minimum wage (SMIG)

A couple of British catastrophies
1531  Henry VIII is recognized as the supreme head of the Church of England
1975  Mrs. Margaret Thatcher becomes the first woman to lead the British 
Conservative Party.

Depends on your standpoint, none of these are particularly significant for 
maybe Jalta and Friedrich Ebert could be considered to be politically
