1384 AD Taking advantage of the Portuguese political crisis, Castillian forces invade and lay siege to Lisbon. It will take 4 months but the defenders helped by a plague will repel the invaders.

1385 AD The crisis ended with the coronation of John the I of Portugal. Later he will defeat the Castilians securing Portugal's independence.

1386 AD After the battle of Sempach Switzerland secures its independence from Hampsurg rule (and anyone else's for this matter to the present day).

Keep counting, obviously.

Like I keep saying, you don't need to use years all the time.

I propose all non-year submissions be treated as the most egregious form of in-game cheating.

1389 AD The Battle of Kosovo heralds the dawn of slavery to the Ottomans for Serbs. Because of the number of their people that died there, Serbs consider the area sacred and that's why it is difficult to recognise it as an independent state nowadays.

1390 AD The Ottomans take Philadelphia, the last Byzantine enclave of any significance in Anatolia. A siege is coming...

1391 AD Manuel II Palaiologos becomes Byzantine emperor after his father, John V Palaiologos dies.

1392 AD Turkish forces lay siege to Constantinople, the siege will last for eight years and will be lifted by the most unexpected power...

1393 AD Turks subdue Bulgaria and annexe Thessaly from Byzantine rule.

How could you fill 1392 with one sentence on the umpteen-bajillioneth siege of Constantinople when you could have written about the King of France going batshit crazy (while on campaign against the Duke of Brittany who was harboring the attempted-murderer of the French Constable) and murdering several members of his retinue, then wasting 1393 by not describing the Ball of Flames... Come on, where's your sense of drama?

James I was King of Scots from 1406 until his assassination in 1437.

Commission Regulation (EU) No 1407/2013 of 18 December 2013 on the application of Articles 107 and 108 of the Treaty on the Functioning of the European Union to de minimis aid, is an EU regulation dealing with horizontal State Aid.

1408 is a hyperbolic number used by Gracchus Babeuf to jokingly refer to the number of times Jamiet99uk said too many of the numbers in The Counting Game were being correlated with a historical year.

Clearly the criticism was facetious. Is internet humor dead? And even if it wasn't meant to be funny I found it funny. So no post shaming buddy!

1409 - Cheng Ho (or Zheng He), admiral of the Ming empire fleet, deposes the king of Sri Lanka.

1410 - July 15 – Battle of Grunwald (Žalgiris), also known as Battle of Tannenberg: Polish and Lithuanian forces under cousins Jogaila and Vytautas the Great decisively defeat the forces of the Teutonic Knights, whose power is broken.

1411 - Under the Yongle Emperor of Ming China, work begins to reinstate the ancient Grand Canal of China, which fell into disuse and dilapidation during the previous Yuan Dynasty. Between 1411 and 1415, a total of 165,000 laborers dredge the canal bed in Shandong, build new channels, embankments, and canal locks. Four large reservoirs in Shandong are also dug, in order to regulate water levels, instead of resorting to pumping water from local tables. A large dam is also constructed, to divert water from the Wen River southwest into the Grand Canal.

July 24 – Battle of Harlaw in Scotland: Domhnall of Islay, Lord of the Isles, and an army commanded by Alexander Stewart, Earl of Mar battle to a bloody draw.
