We’re back at it again with the history memes here, folks.
Now, I’m personally obsessed with everything that’s happened in the past. Still, it’s pretty understandable if high school put you off history class for life.
Luckily for us, we now have memes to educate us instead of boring old textbooks.
Here are 14 accidentally educational memes that’ll leave you feeling like you know a thing or two about the past.
1. Surprise attack
Yeah, Canada was once an absolute savage. Plus, the War of 1812 proved that Dolley Madison was the real MVP.

It’s wild that Henry VIII had enough wives to fill in all the soul stones on the Infinity Gauntlet.

It’s a pretty sweet name, if I do say so myself.
Can you believe that people were always total train wrecks? Guess we’ll always repeat the cycle of history – for as long as humanity exists. Honestly though, I’m about it.
