strictly speaking 1500 is a leap year. the gregorian reform occured in 1582, prior to which leap year calculation was based strictly on being divisible by 4. after 1582, the concept of century years were considerd.

interestingly if someone claimed that a murder occured on 7th October, 1582, he would be lying because no such date actually existed. (Oct 5 to Oct 14 1582 does not exist).
