 9 (number)
In classical music the curse of the ninth refers to the popular and journalistic notion that some 'mortal' significance attaches to the composition of a 'ninth' symphony, which prevents the composer from writing another.
Perhaps Antonín Dvořák was also superstitious about the number nine, because he wrote no symphonies after his New World Symphony, which is nowadays considered his Ninth, but which he thought of was his Eighth because he considered the score of his early C minor symphony lost forever.
In the twentieth century, a handful of composers, such as Dmitri Shostakovich, have written a Ninth Symphony and lived to write more.

 [History] > 9th Century - Tet - Coronation of Charlemagne   (Site not responding. Last check: )
I find it intriguing, in light of the revelation of the relation between History and the structure of Scripture, that there was a recognition of the Work of God in the "march of the centuries" during the course of the same.
This touches the interminable and not very edifying argument about whether or not a century begins in the year "00" or "01." I settled on the Ninth Century for a for a few reasons.
Also, from the sense of history being like a wave moving forward, the impact of an event that happened in one century may not be felt until the next.

In the 9th century, a Welsh name might have been recorded in either Old Welsh or Latin; the majority of surviving records from that period are in Latin.
Because we have an example of the name from the 13th century, it seems fairly safe to assume that it may have been in use one century earlier in the 12th century.
It is less safe to assume that it would have been in use in the 9th century, however because the name is of native Welsh origin (and was not borrowed from English or Norman French) it is not implausible that it might have been used at that time.

 Viking Dublin the 9th century evidence
These two large-scale excavations, the former in the north-east corner of the tenth century settlement, the latter outside this settlement on the south-eastern side, have finally begun to produce evidence that sheds light on the early development of ninth-century Dublin, a subject we know relatively little about (Figs 1 and 2).
According to contemporary Irish annalistic sources, the Vikings first appear raiding along the Irish coast in the late eighth century but these initial raids were confined to the maritime settlements and there was little penetration inland (Mac Shamhráin 2002, 43-5).
The evidence, however, suggests that the earliest levels in the historic core can be dated to the tenth century and no earlier and are therefore related to the documented ‘return’ of the expelled Vikings in AD 902 rather than the initial establishment of the ship fortress or longphort in AD 841.

 The Jehoash inscription: Relic or forgery?
If it had been authenticated as dating to the 9th century BCE, it would have been a unique piece of physical evidence which confirmed the accuracy of portions of 2 Kings in the Hebrew Scriptures (Old Testament).
Most biblical scholars believe that the 1 Kings was not written at the time of King Jehoash in the 9th century BCE, but was composed centuries later.
Avi Hurvitz, an expert on the historical development of the Hebrew language, said that a 20th century individual "...may have seen the Mesha Stele, forged the inscription according to the style of the Mesha stone, and even made sure to suit its contents to what is written in the Tanakh [The Hebrew Scriptures].
