---------------------------------------------
It began when a peculiar fog enveloped the European continent, shrouding the sun in a blue haze. Europe, the Middle East and parts of Asia were plunged into darkness 24 hours a day, for 18 months. The widespread dust veil event caused temperatures to plummet, ushering in the iciest decade of the past 2,000 years. Snow fell in summer, and there was widespread crop collapse from Ireland to China, resulting in mass famine. Irish chronicles report a three year “failure of bread”. Those who survived the long, cold blackness were met with even more horror in the years to come. The chilly gloom may well have precipitated an epidemic of bubonic plague, known as Justinian's Plague, which swept through the Mediterranean in A.D. 541, costing up to 100 million lives.

2020 was undoubly a bad year all of us.It started with the deadly Australian wildfire. And ended with 2.1 millions deaths due to COVID-19. But still 2020 wasn't the Worst Year. Year 536 is known as the Worst year in human History.

In 536, a massive volcano erupted in Iceland.The eruption threw millions of Tons ash into the Air.The Ash quickly spread around the world. And blocked sunlight from reaching the Surface.The darkness lasted for more than 18 months.

Due to the lack of Sunlight all the Crops failed. And the average Earth's temperature came down.Temperature in the Summer fell to just 1.5°C to 2.5°C. And millions of people were starved to death. At the same year, Bubonic Plague also started. Leading to an estimated 25-50 millions deaths. Which aided the collapse of Eastern Roman Empire.
But as 2020 was, 536 was even Worse!
