Probably the greatest natural disaster ever to strike humanity, the Black Death's lethality is legendary, killing between a quarter and a half of the population of the affected areas. Though historians suspect a first wave of bubonic plague struck the Mediterranean area c. 571-760 C.E., there is no doubt that the plague was carried west by the Mongol Golden Horde in the late 1340s as they raided as far west as Constantinople, where it is believed that Genoese traders became infected with the disease, which they then carried into European and northern African ports. Within about two years practically the entire European continent and much of North Africa had been affected by this disaster of apocalyptic proportions.
