Taiping Rebellion, mid 1800s China. In short:

>Dude Hong Xiquan fails civil service exam three times, goes crazy, thinks he's the younger brother of Jesus

>Starts a religious rebellion while China's already fucked with the Opium Wars, does pretty well, all of society under Taiping is a weird fusion of religion and military

>Ends up crushed, up to 30 fucking million people die, Nanjing gets wrekt pretty bad, deadliest civil war in human history

>All started by a Chinese dude who thought he was related to Christ

Probably one of the weirdest history stories I've came upon so far
