The Black Death breaks out in China
The Great Khan is dead and his long line of heirs with him. Although it is not certain, it is possible that the death of Jayaatu Toq-Temur was due to the Black Death. The timeline is sketchy concerning exactly when the outbreak of Plague started in China but when an entire family drops dead suddenly and the contemporary historians are saying that the plague started around now, one makes the connection. Chroniclers of the time suggest that extreme weather and earthquakes caused a release of a miasma, but we know now that the so-called miasma was the Plague. It will be a few more years until the Plague reaches Europe. Then it will move like a wild fire.    
Balliol Grabs His Underwear and RUNS!
It would seem that King Edward III of England has found a loophole in the treaty of Northampton. The Battle of Dupplin Moor is a fight over whether a eight-year-old, David II, King of Scots, has a better claim to the kingship than Edward Balliol who is supported by the King of England. The fight becomes so disorderly that David's defenders will run over top of their fellows who fell in front of them from the archer's arrows. The bodies will pile up to a spear's height. Edward Balliol will declare himself King but in a chance encounter later in the year, David's supporters will surprise Balliol causing him to run out into the night, half dressed and over the border into England.
