Wycliffe's Inconvenient Death
Pope Urban the 6th is an enthusiastic reformer of the Church but his efforts are superficial (or his efforts are rendered superficial by the Church bureaucracy) but either way it is clear the reform movement from within is failing. John Wycliffe had been an early supporter of Pope Urban but after the Peasant's Revolt, one of Wycliffe's followers was implicated. Pope Urban issued a number of opinions... none of them favorable to Wycliffe and summoned Wycliffe to Rome. Wycliffe has continued his fiery call for reform, and writes a response to the Pope but after Christmas in the midst of performing mass, he has a massive stroke and passes away before the year is out. Several reform movements, including the Lollard movement, will lumber on for several years and die out but the way has been paved for the Protestant Reformation years and years from now.       
A Crisis of Nationhood
Armed rebels in Lisbon have blocked King John I of Castile from entering the city for his coronation. Thus begins the Siege of Lisbon. This siege marks the beginnings of Portugal's modern nationhood. Last year, while King Ferdinand was dying, arrangements were made for a clear succession. Without male heirs, and one 10-year-old princess to use as a bargaining chip, a deal is struck with King John I of Castile in the hope of ending hostilities between the two warring kingdoms. Many of the nobles objected so once the marriage concluded, a civil war broke out. Now the Castillian forces surround Lisbon but the Black Death comes to the rescue. The Plague scatters the Castillian forces and breaks the Siege of Lisbon.  
Mama Mia! Lady Berkeley's New School
It is in the top 75 schools to this date that have been established and remain in operation to the modern day. Lady Katharine Berkley has established a free school for learning grammar.... that is... how to speak English correctly and how to read and write. It is named the Katharine Lady Berkley's Grammar School. Eventually, the school will drop the "Grammar" part of the name and expand it's scope. It will also graduate a number of famous people including William Tynsdale (of the famous Tynsdale Bible), Edward Jenner (who created the smallpox vaccine) and Catherine Johnson... who wrote the play "Mama Mia!" which was made into a popular movie musical.
