This storyboard was created with
Kaffa was controlled by Italian Merchants but were under attack by Muslim Turks
Attaching forces of Tatars were infected by the plague
Tatars ordered for their dead men to be thrown from catapults into Kaffa hoping the intolerable stench would kill everything inside
The disease spread rapidly across tropes and killing all but few
The Italian merchants came in contact with merchants in Constantinople who carried the plague further east
Italians fled on their boats and didn't know they were carrying the diseases which then led them to infect those who they came in contact with
The Italian merchants introduced the disease to their homeland Italy via their own infection and the rats
When the boats arrived at the ports in Italy everyone waited to greet them
The rats that were on their boat jumped land to Italy
