In 1712, The date, February 30, 1712 Julian-Swedish Date, which maps out to March 11, 1712 on the Gregorian calendar, existed in order for Sweden to realign their ill-fated short-lived calendar without leap year days (no February 29's between 1700 and 1740 inclusive) back to a Julian calendar still in use with some countries. Their attempt to gradually change from the Julian to the Gregorian calender by dropping leap year days every four years went awry when they forgot to exclude two February 29's in 1704 and 1708 due to a war they were involved in. In 1753, Sweden switched to the Gregorian calendar outright by omitting the last 11 days in February (18 through the 28th); the day after February 17, 1753 (Julian) was March 1, 1753 (Gregorian). February 30, 1712 Julian-Swedish date mapped to February 29, 1712 Julian date, February 29, 1711/12 Julian-Lady Day reckoning date hence the dual dating method until March 24, and March 11, 1712 Gregorian date.
