Atilla the Hun who ruled from 434-453 was known as The Scourge of God. He was called that by the Roman Empires because of his plunders in Roman territory.
The Reign of Terror lasted from September 1793 to July 1794. There were six major factors that made it possible:
1. The external pressure from the Coalition Armies to restore the monarchy.
2. The creation of the Revolutionary Tribunal which became the executioner for the CBS.
3. The establishment of Committee of Public Safety(CBS) for suppressing internal revolts while the National Convention dealt with outside threats.
4. The murder of Jean-Paul Marat and removal of George Danton.
5. Maximilien Robespierre's appointment as a member of CBS.
6. The passing of the Law of Suspects.

Slavery was not a new institution in the country of Brazil. Prior to the arrival of the African population, indigenous peoples would enslave each other through war and debt collection. However, with the booming sugar plantations, and many new colonies that began to thrive, more and more labor was needed. Indigenous populations were first used, but there was always a need for more hands on the massive plantations. Sugar is a demanding crop, from start to finish, which calls for constant attention to be paid to it.
The thriving Atlantic Slave Trade made it possible for more peoples to be brought to foreign shores for the express purpose of working the large plantations, that were arising in Brazil and other countries. With arrives of new workforces consistently arriving, there were many new ventures that were started, such as cattle ranches, and other venues.
With cheaper labor and slave population, many ventures grew quite large due to the low overhead of a workforce. It is estimated that over 1 million African slaves were brought to Brazil in the years between 1700-1800. That number would significantly expand once coffee became more in demand.
A boomtown is a place that started out as a small town but has suddenly gone through an economic growth. This may be a town that started with nothing but was able to establish itself based on the different things that it offered. There are a lot of boomtowns now that are considered to be ghost towns.
Some of them had thriving businesses in the past but because of change, what supported their economic growth also stopped. There are also some that have become ghost towns because of war, natural disasters, and some were stopped by the government. It would be fascinating to see these types of towns right now.
At one time the empire of Spain had the best navy due to one battle. During the Spanish Armada, Spain sent its naval ships to fight England. At one time, it was avoided, but now they were fighting against each other. This battle was known as the Spanish Armada and it was made famous because the Spanish navy fought bravely against Great Britain which had far more ships and experience than Spain.
England had about 34 warships and over one hundred other vessels. Spain had barely one hundred vessels and not many warships. This should have been an easy battle for Great Britain to win. Instead, it took a while and they did not completely annihilate the enemy of Spain.
King Arthur was known for leading battles for Britain and against Saxon. This usually involved invaders of his country. He fought during the 5th and the centuries. There is much debate, argument and doubt whether King Arthur really existed. Many historians have looked into the accuracy of King Arthur’s existence.
However, many stories have evolved and were written as pure fiction about King Arthur. They state that King Arthur pulled a sword out of a stone where no one else could do that. He was able to do that as a young boy. He was told he would be king and he was. He met at a round table with his knights. This became known as the Knights of the Round Table.
The Vikings were a group of people from the Scandinavian countries of Norway, Sweden, Denmark and possibly Iceland that are known for traveling by sea. Through generations, Viking stories have included them being very barbaric. However, since they sailed and explored different areas many years ago, it is difficult to determine if they really committed all of the atrocities that the stories detail. The Vikings began exploring as early as the 8th century and finishing during the 11th century.
Parts of the stories that have been told about the Vikings’ behavior and method of attack seems to be real. The Vikings believed in the Norse religion that was based on gods who were over war. Their style of fighting included their harsh fighting tactics.
Due to new technology, scientists have been able to determine the first race of people came from Africa. These people were known as the San People. They were known as many others during this time as hunters and gatherers. This means that they would hunt around for bears and other animals to hunt for their meat. They would also gather berries and plants that they could find. Many hunters and gatherers were known as nomadic people because they would have to go throughout different locations in Africa to find more food.
It is believed that these people lived as far back as over 200,000 years ago. However, an artifact that dates the furthest back in time is in 44,000 BCE where a group of tools were discovered that is believed to have belonged to this group of people.
The plague was a disease that was highly contagious that affected Europe during different times. However, the most prominent time when the Bubonic plague hit and did the most damage was during the Middle Ages. It was referred to as Black Death. During these 60 years, people in Europe were frightened of this disease. It was wiping out families instantly. The most common cause of the spread of the Bubonic plague was due to trade.
Trade during this time had just started and merchants were traveling to different parts of the world in order to trade their items. With them, they or rats would carry the disease and spread it to wherever they landed. When the plague was over almost 1/3 of the population had died.
