    The eruption of Tambora in 1815 was many times more powerful than Krakatoa; see https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/1815_e..._Mount_Tambora

    The 1883 eruption of Krakatoa has the distinction of being the loudest eruption heard over the greatest distance, as far as Madagascar. My kid is a volcano nut. I've heard this fact more times than I care to count.
