15 History Memes To Teach You Some Weird Trivia Facts

History memes are timeless. Instead of focusing on things like trendy formats and current events, these memes explore the potential of the many thousands of years before our time that often go ignored in typical meme material. Even though we've grown up in a very different era, why should we pretend people in ancient history weren't doing some pretty cool things that none of us will ever live up to?

Apparently, we're not the only ones to live in some strange and turbulent times. Throughout history, everyone else has been doing it, too. And sometimes, the stories they wind up with are ridiculous enough to make some great memes. These memes might not make your APUSH teacher very happy, but for the rest of us, they're pretty great. After all, they finally put all those history facts you were forced to learn to good use. Here are some of our favorite memes based on world history.
