The Ocarina of Sky

The word "influenza" comes from the Italian influentia because people used to believe that the influence of the planets, stars, and moon caused the flu. Logically, only such universal influence could explain such sudden and widespread sickness.

In 1599, a Spanish governor in Ecuador taxed the Jivaro tribe so excessively that they executed him by pouring molten gold down his throat. This form of execution was also practiced by the Romans and the Spanish Inquisition.

"Morsmorde" is the command that makes the Dark Mark, the mark of Voldemort, appear and means "take a bite out of death" in French, making it an appropriate call for Death Eaters.

This was something really interesting that i learned in history

Joseph Stalin was exiled to Siberia 8 times and managed to escape from Siberia 7 times

In WW1, Adolf Hitler was a messenger who had cross through the front lines to deliver messages to his superiors. It was during this period that Hitler had earned 2 Iron crosses- the highest military award that one can receive in the German army for his bravery as a messenger

When Hitler became the leader of Germany, he actually did many good deeds such as helping Germany overcome their financial crisis, he helped build the Autobahn and was able to host the 1936 olympic games as a result of his many good deeds as a leader.

Hitler was also nominated for a nobel peace prize in 1939- the year WW2 started but didn't win the prize

Albert Einstein was a Jew who was born in Germany and fled to America after reading a book that Hitler published titled 'Mein Kampf' which stated Hitler's intentions once he became leader of Germany
