When was the last year D?

1998.
According to the system of Dominical letters, year D starts on a Thursday (A on a Monday, B tuesday, C wednesday, D thursday and so on). 2004 also began on a Thursday but was a leap year and so a DC year.
Dominical letters are used to work out when Easter occurs.
Dominical letters repeat themselves exactly every 400 years.

There is a lot of info about Dominical letters, but Im not sure if it is QI or rather dry.
