The Black Death

Storyboard Text

  • HELP!
  • Yay I get more money!
  • Loser you can't over power me now
  • When the Black Death reached Europe in 1347 around 50 million (60% of the population) Died. So many died it took 200 years to grow the population back up to what it was in 1347.
  • Its not them.
  • Due to so many people dying, the feudal system fell out of place making the lower class live a better life. Also due to many dying, serfs demanded for a raise as there were little serfs left to serve the rich.
  • Why have you foresaken me!
  • During the pandemic many blamed minority groups such as the Jews for causing the Black Death and people burned many Jews.
  • I know this is a fly but its the closest thing I could get to a flee.
  • We'll get them next time boys.
  • Pope Francis the 6th saved the Jews by claiming that they were dying too, meaning they couldn't be the cause for the Black Death.
  • Due to the Pope claiming that the Jews weren't at fault people were very confused and then turned against God claiming he was at fault.
  • In the end people never really understood how the Black Death was spread, but thankfully during winter the pandemic died down as all living fleas and eggs were killed of due to low humidity in the air. (As Bobert Hale quotes in Horrible History) "But not for long" because when winter finished it was prime season for the fleas to build their population up and spread The Black Death yet again!
