What's history?

History tends to be a lot of boring dates and names and numbers, lines of succession, battles, wars and geography.

It doesn't always have to be like that, though. Sometimes it's about two blind guys named Vasily fighting over who gets to be king of Russia. Sometimes it's about a crazy, eye-patch-wearing king who's obsessed with architecture and fathering illegitimate children, or monks faking letters from the pope in order to fool the government into making them tax-exempt.

Sometimes, it's really interesting.
