Mine is 776

Having been born then I could have been Abu Uthman Amr Ibn Bahr al-Kinani al-Fuqaimi al-Basri, some "Arabic prose writer, historian, and author of works of literature, Mu'tazili theology, and politico-religious polemics." One of his most important works... "The al-Hayawan is an encyclopedia of seven volume of anecdotes, poetic descriptions and proverbs describing over 350 varieties of animals."

Be gone Noah of the Arab world.

I could have been a founder of Rudolstadt...."a town in Germany.... located in the Bundesland of Thuringia (German: Thüringen), close to the Thuringian Forest... Rudolstadt became popular through the Anchor Stone Blocks and porcelain-factories. Rudolstadt also hosts Germany’s biggest folk, roots and world music festival (Tanz&FolkFest) taking place annually on the first full July weekend."

Or I could have died in...

"The Battle of Otford was a battle fought in 776 between king Offa of Mercia and the Jutes of Kent.

Although the outcome of the battle is not recorded the re-establishment of Kent as an independent kingdom implies that the battle was won by Kent."

How boring my year was.

Birth of Nero and the revelation of St. Paul.

In fact, I planned my membership of OTF several years in advance just so I could rule this thread.

not much is remembered of 152 AD outside of mauritania.

152 BC is a bit better: M. Cato goes as ambassador to Carthage. He returns urging the destruction of Carthage, and illustrates the threat by showing a fresh fig from the city.

And 2500 years later, one G.W. Bush repeats the same trick.

1637:

* February 3 - Tulip mania collapses in the United Provinces (now the Netherlands) by government order
* February 15 - Ferdinand III becomes Holy Roman Emperor
* December 17 - Shimabara Rebellion erupts in Japan
* Pierre de Fermat makes a marginal claim to have proof of what would become known as Fermat's last theorem.
* France places a few missionaries in the Côte d'Ivoire, a country it would come to rule more than 200 years later.
* The Kingdom of England wages war against the Mashantucket Pequots
* First opera house, Teatro San Cassiona, opens in Venice
* René Descartes - Discours de la Methode
* Elizabeth Poole becomes the first woman to have founded a town (Taunton, Massachusetts) in the Americas.

Is there not a more obvious name than "Taunton" for the town founded by Elizabeth "Poole"?

In the 18th century, spam was invented and the OTF Tardis span out of control, jumping from 1777 to 1874 to 1917 to 1969 to 2016.

Joseph died, apparently.

Probably setting off all sorts of confusing reactions in hormonally charged teenage Jesus' head. As if he didn't have enough to cope with already the poor sod.

In 68 AD, the Gallic and Spanish legions, along with the Praetorian Guards, rose against Nero and he fled Rome. The senate declared him a public enemy and he committed suicide on 9 June 68 AD. Disputes over his succession led to civil war in Rome.

Sweet

68

This year is known as the year of the four Roman Emperors Servius Sulpicius Galba (68-69) (murdered), Marcus Salvius Otho (69-69)(suicides), Aulus Vitellius (69-69) (killed) and Vespasian (69-79) (Legate of Judea) prevailed. The Senate is considered as helpless during this period of internal revolution.

The Judah staged a full-scale revolution that required the attention of six Roman Legions. The Roman General Vespasian marched on Jerusalem leaving scorched earth behind him and driving the Zealots into Jerusalem. The Zealots turned against the hereditary Temple aristocratic and high-priestly leaders replacing them by lot with lowborn individuals. This stage of the rebellion represents the peasants against the aristocrats.

The Judah Sects complained that the tax rate of 25 percent on top of the temples 22 percent is unacceptable. Civilis the Roman commander guarding the Rhine also rebelled against Rome in support of Vespasion. At this time Rome is gripped by a civil struggle between Aulus Vitellius and Vespasian who would become Emperor. Many outlying regions seized this as an opportunity to gain advantage.

Pliny the Elder a Roman historian is exploring the Jordan Valley and Dead Sea regions. A few miles south of Jericho, where Qumran lies, he described a settlement of deeply religious men, whom he called the Essenes. The settlement has no women and the Essenes no money yet by recruitment through thousands of ages a race in which no one is born lives on forever. The Messianic Essenes gathered and copied texts from diverse places, placed them in terra-cotta jars and sealed them behind false rock faces for safekeeping. The texts included Greek and Hebrew from the Book of Isaiah to land deeds, marriage contracts, bill of divorce, scriptural commentaries all mingled. They even included a list of the hidden treasures of Jerusalem suggesting the Messianic Essene are likely a main stream Judaeans. The Dead Sea Scrolls are the oldest source of the Old Testament and does not include the book of Esther. The Romans later this year occupied the Qumran temple and the fate of the Messianic Essene Sect is unknown. It is believed the Dead Sea Scrolls are buried this year. The Essene Sect had groups of followers in every town of Judea and is likely absorbed into one of the evolving Judo-Christian Sects. The Dead Sea Scrolls are believed to cover the period of 150 B.C. to 68 A.D.
