Trivia Question

Trivia Question: One of the causes of the European Wars of Religion was the “Defenestration” of what Czech city?

Answer: Prague

Defenestration means to throw someone or something out of a window. At this absurd 1618 historical event, Protestant peace delegates threw Catholic peace delegates out of the windows of their meeting place. This is considered by many to be the final failed attempt at peace before the Wars of Religion began in earnest.
