"The revolution volcano"

Its name, Laki, is easier to pronounce than Eyjafjallajokull. Some Icelandic words are easier to pronounce than others!
The Laki volcanic fissure in southern Iceland erupted over an eight-month period from 8 June 1783 to February 1784.
It triggered a weird weather and bad crops which were one of the causes of the revolution.
