Year 1696 (MDCXCVI) was a leap year starting on Sunday (link will display the full calendar) of the Gregorian calendar (or a leap year starting on Wednesday of the 10-day slower Julian calendar).

The year 1696 had the earliest dates for equinoxes and solstices for 400 years in the Gregorian calendar, because this year was the last leap year of the century, and subsequent years (by skipping leap day, also in 1700) allowed the equinoxes to edge towards later dates. However, prior to the 1582 Gregorian reform, the equinoxes were even much earlier, by the extra 10-day shift. See 1903.
