25 History Memes That Didn't Build the Pyramids

The Egyptian Pyramids are one of the seven wonders of the world for a reason. Here are some memes about those, and other historical cornerstones. 

With Ridley Scott's upcoming Napoleon movie on everybody's radar, history nerds have their eyes tuned to the blockbuster flick. Specifically one scene that allegedly shows the French general bombing the Egyptian Pyramids. However, as the aforementioned buffs were quick to point out, that never happened. Even Scott admitted, "I don’t know if he did that, but it was a fast way of saying he took Egypt.” Is it ethical to depict important historical events inaccurately for the sake of entertainment? It appears like Scott would say yes, while hundreds of Twitter historians say no. 

But if you're looking for a form of historical entertainment that doesn't take the truth for granted, look no further than these 25 history memes. They'll give you the accurate gist of a historical event, in the form of an entertaining, and sometimes relatable meme. If the internet's lowly meme creators can take history into account when they make their content, then one of the world's premiere directors can too.
