It is often said that history is bound to repeat itself. We like to think that's an exaggeration, but it's definitely true where history memes are concerned. And not in a bad way. Memers have proved that it's possible to retell historical events using an inane variety of meme formats - some of which have nothing to do with history at all. We've rounded up a nice selection for you, but if you find yourself wanting more check out one of our other galleries or the r/HistoryMemes subreddit. You won't be disappointed.
