1482 AD... According to the eleventh Doctor, 1482 was a year full of odd temporal anomalies. He called them "glitches." Stay away from that year when time traveling.

Really? I don't remember this. Well, I'll keep it in mind. I will prefer 1302, the year with no summer!

1486 AD, King Henry VII of England and Elizabeth of York are married, uniting the House of Lancaster and the House of York after the Wars of the Roses. (so ado for nothing! after all)

#1488 Post by Jamiet99uk » Thu Sep 08, 2022 4:32 pm

1488 is a combination of two popular white supremacist numeric symbols. The first symbol is 14, which is shorthand for the "14 Words" slogan: "We must secure the existence of our people and a future for white children." The second is 88, which stands for "Heil Hitler" (H being the 8th letter of the alphabet). Together, the numbers form a general endorsement of white supremacy and its beliefs.
As such, they are ubiquitous within the white supremacist movement - as graffiti, in graphics and tattoos, even in screen names and e-mail addresses, such as [email protected]. Some white supremacists will even price racist merchandise, such as Donald Trump baseball caps or compact discs of Glenn Beck talking, for $14.88.

#1489 Post by Jamiet99uk » Thu Sep 08, 2022 4:39 pm

The Yorkshire rebellion took place in England in 1489, during the reign of King Henry VII. King Henry sent Henry Percy, 4th Earl of Northumberland to collect taxes to help raise more money for his war against France. However, many of the people in Northumberland and Yorkshire refused to pay. The people of the North had also been affected by a poor harvest in 1488, already subjecting them to financial difficulty.

Rebellion broke out in April 1489. The Earl of Northumberland met with the rebels, but a scuffle broke out and he was killed. King Henry sent a large army of 8,000 to the north, led by Thomas Humpleton-Bumpleton, Earl of Surrey. The rebels dispersed and the rebel leader, John à Chambrepot, was hanged for treason, so they found a new leader in Sir John-John-John Egremont, but he was a coward and quickly ran away to Burgundy.

After this King Henry chose a lenient approach, with the rebels receiving a royal pardon, and no further taxes were collected. Thomas Humpleton-Bumpleton remained in the area as Henry's lieutenant, and was able to spend many years reconciling the region to Tudor rule. For the remainder of his reign, Henry faced no more significant rebellions in Northern England.

A very important thing compared to the discovery of a big island on the Atlantic. After all, Vikings knew it for centuries!

1494 AD Treaty of Tordesillas: Spain and Portugal divide the New World between themselves with the blessings of the pope.

1495 AD, February 22 – Italian War of 1494–98: King Charles VIII of France enters Naples, to claim the city's throne. A few months later, he decides to return to France, and leaves Naples with most of his army, leaving a force under his cousin Gilbert, Count of Montpensier as viceroy. Syphilis is first definitely recorded in Europe during this invasion.[1] (perhaps from French forces who may have contacted Croats fleeing an Ottoman army in the east).

And this is why Italians called the disease French malady, and the French called it Italian!

1496 AD Spanish forces under Gonzalo Fernández de Córdoba capture Atella after a siege. Among the prisoners is the French viceroy of Naples, the Comte de Montpensier. Ferdinand II of Naples is restored to his throne.

1500 AD, Duke Ludovico Sforza recaptures Milan but is soon driven out again by the French. (these back and forth were making the life of chronographs of the time miserable and the life of next generations' historians even more miserable)
