Forget about all those dates, battles & boring people - lists & lists to memorize. I love history - not history classes, because they never teach you the good stuff. The royal treachery, the peasant riots, the polygamous kings & bloodthirsty hellions. Over the years I've amassed a good amount of knowledge about most kinds of history, ancient being one of my definite favorites, but I'll address a more general history here. So you may have taken history. But do you know what really happened?
