Great stuff!!!!
I am from Poland :wink: Here some real interesting facts about this picture:
- one of the biggest paint on the world 426 × 987 cm
- our the most famous painter: Jan Matejko
- The centre of paint doesn`t show our King Wladyslaw Jagiello! People very often mistake it! Our King is on the hill on the right side of paint
- in centre in white coat is Ulrich von Jungingen the Grand Master of the Teutonic Order which died in this battle
- this was the BIGGEST battlefield in Middle Age time
- it was not ultimate destruction of Teutonic Order! Many people thinks it was the end but after this battlefield our King Jagiello made some tactical mistakes during rest of whole campaign :(
- on Teutonic Order side, fought`s a lot knights from west Europe (biggest part of Teutonic Order)
- it is legend (not proofed ) In this day was very hot and Our King took decision not to attack immediately (he wanted make tired and weak knights from Teutonic Order because they were dressed in metal armours - it was rich elite of whole Europe - so they had to stay on horses whole day in the Hit) - after that begin attack of Polish/Lithuania army.
Teutonic Order wanted stop this not comfortable situation for them and theirs envoys brought two swords for Polish King to make him angry and force to attack. The mining of this two swords was: "If you do not have enough swords to fight we bring it for you..."
- almost whole army of Teutonic Order was destroyed
