Isaac Newton’s birth year (according to the Julian calendar; the Gregorian one was not yet in effect in England at that time).

And also the year Galileo died. Perhaps his soul simply moved from one body to the next. :-)
Galileo, in his turn, was born the same year Michelangelo died: 1564.

Not a particularly well known number, but somewhat comforting if you enjoy chess, and worry about accidentally repeating a game in your lifetime.
