History was one of our favorite subjects in school. There's no end to how much you can learn about the world and the people in it. Have you ever wondered how something got its name, or what a notable historical figure was famous for? It's so important that we study history, mostly so we can avoid repeating it (although that still seems to be happening too often nowadays). But sometimes, the most interesting events in history are the ones you very likely DIDN'T learn about in school. There are some strange historical facts that will blow your mind, proving that truth is always stranger than fiction.
