Best Answer

There were a number of plagues during the Middle Ages. The one you are asking about is most likely the Black Death, which arrived in Europe in 1347 and went on for five years or so. The Black Death was one of the most important events of the Middle Ages and had a profound effect on society. Another important medieval plagues was the Plague of Justinian, in the 6th century.
