Population of Europe during the Dark Ages



In the 1,200's the medieval population was nothing but a very small fraction of what it is today. Cities which today are important had only a few hundred thousand inhabitants. Paris and London had no more than 30,000 residents each just 800 years ago!

The world's largest cities were Constantinople, Baghdad and surprisingly, Tenochtitlan.

In the year 650, only approximately six million European inhabitants were recorded. This number increased to almost 37 million by the year 1340. Cypher which decreased to 22.5 million by the year 1450 caused by the Black Death which killed more than 40% of the European population.
