1464
It is one of eight years (CE) to contain each Roman numeral once (1000(M)+(-100(C)+500(D))+50(L)+10(X)+(-1(I)+5(V)) = 1464).

In China, a small rebellion occurs in the interior province of Huguang, during the Ming Dynasty; a subsequent rebellion springs up in Guangxi, where a rebellion of the Miao people and Yao people forces the Ming throne to respond, by sending 30,000 troops (including 1,000 Mongol cavalry) to aid the 160,000 local troops stationed in the region, to crush the rebellion that will end in 1466.

1465: The 1465 mystery eruption was a large volcanic eruption in the South Pacific identified from distant ice core records and historical accounts of atmospheric events around 1465.The exact location of the eruption is uncertain, but is likely the submerged caldera of Kuwae in the Coral Sea. The eruption is believed to have been VEI-7 and possibly even larger than Mount Tambora's 1815 eruption.

Troops under Stephen III of Moldavia decisively defeat the forces of Matthias Corvinus, King of Hungary, at Baia (present-day Romania). This is the last Hungarian attempt to subdue the Principality of Moldavia.

On the plus side though, Corvinus does go on to found the first university in Slovakia, the Universitas Istropolitana in Bratislava.

Henry VI did not last long however, as King Edward IV returns and defeats the Lancastrians at Barnet and Tewkesbury, killing the Prince of Wales and capturing his mother Queen Margaret. Edward IV celebrates his victories with a triumphal parade on his return to London. The captured Queen Margaret is paraded through the streets.

The same day Henry VI of England is murdered in the Tower of London, eliminating all Lancastrian opposition to the House of York
