Trivia Question: In 1518, citizens of Strasbourg in Alsace began to uncontrollably perform what action continuously over the course of days?
This event is known as The Dancing Plague. Unprovoked, villagers began to dance about not knowing why they were doing so and claiming they were unable to stop. After a few days of this continued dance, the people of Strasbourg were dehydrated and collapsing from the strain of this mysterious affliction.
Founder of IHP, husband to a great wife (my best friend), and dad to 5 wonderful kids. Big fan of history, quizzes, and just about anything trivia related. I also enjoy reading biographies, non-fiction, and fiction (fantasy novels). My other hobby is board games and in my opinion there is nothing better than a family board game night!
