The Black Death was an epidemic of Bubonic Plague that hit Europe in 1346, killing about 30-60% of Europe's population at its peak. It led to social and economic change being greatly accelerated, eventually leading to capitalism, and the church's power was weakened. Medical knowledge was also increased. This devastating plague stopped in 1350, though it kept coming back until the 19th century. What if it appeared a century earlier, in 1246?
The religious, social and economical changes would have happened during the 13th century, which would then lead to the renaissance during the same period. The renaissance held an increase in the scientific field leading to technological breakthroughs 100 years earlier then our timeline (e.g, the car was invented in 1785 rather the 1885), meaning we should be 100 years more advanced.
Note: some events are plus or minus a century because some events contradict one another (America is already discovered, so Columbus sailed southwest towards Australia).
