7+8+5 = 20
In hexadecimal, multiples of 5 have digits which sum to a multiple of 5
785 hexadecimal = 1792 + 128 + 5 = 1925

786 might be the largest n for which the value of the central binomial coefficient 2nCn is not divisible by an odd prime squared. If there is a larger such number, it would have to be at least 157450.

792 AD Offa, king of Mercia and a really fearsome man, arranges coastal defences to fend off Viking attacks. He forms an alliance with Essex, Kent and Sussex, in an attempt to unify England (under his own crown, of course!).

How dare you Mr dargo

793 is the 12th star number. Only 3 of these are semiprime; 121 = 11*11 253=11*23 and 793 =13*61. 121 and 253 are both 'sad' (not happy). So there. Your 795 is just silly.

"792. Constantine recalled his mother and made her coruler. She took vile advantage of him and, after his divorce and and remarriage arranged by her (795), put herself at the head of a party of the monks in opposing iconoclasm."

798 AD King Alfonso II of Asturias campaigns against the Arab Muslims in Al-Andalus. With Frankish military support, he raids into Andalusia and sacks Lisbon. At the same time Bahlul ibn Marzuq, a Vascon-Muslim military leader, revolts in Zaragoza against the Arab-Muslim government of Al-Andalus. From such regional resistance will the Reconquista emerge.
