Yes - the previous multiple of 4, 1900, as a year divisible by 100, would also require to be divisible by 400 in order to be a leap year - which it is not. While 2000 is divisible by 400, 2100, 2200 and 2300 are not, and therefore none of those three will be a leap year.

1900 was also the last year of the 19t century, so 1904 would've been the first leap year ever of the 20th century regardless if 1900 was a leap year or not. Even if 1900 was a triple leap year because it was divisible by 475, anything else would've been ignored by the time 1905 came.

### Is the year 1200 a century leap year?

Yes! It was a century leap year. Other century leap years are
1600 and 2000. The next one will probably be 2400, and along with
another century leap year, 2800, that is true. The next century
leap year will occur in 2400. Century leap years always start on a
Saturday and the February 29 intercalation in these days is always
a Tuesday to being that year.
