History isn’t boring. The way it’s taught in high school is.
Here you will find some of the stories that make history fun. Like a pope sleeping with his daughter. An American hero who helped bring Hitler to power. America’s most scandalous president (and it’s not Nixon). And a hero of Medieval Europeans who enjoyed making huge pyramids out of the severed heads of thousands of his victims.
These are a few of the juicy stories historians keep to themselves.
