Kroglu, not a great king, but a hero for the Anatolian people...

And a great king and a commander, the conquerer of Anatolia, the statue of Alp Arslan in Turkmenistan...

Suleyman died during the siege of Szigetvr. Mikls Zrnyi the ban of Croatia was the leader of the defenders, and a national hero in Croatia and Hungary. When the whole castle was in flames and everything seem lost, he and his men bravely charged the ottomans and died as heroes. According to the Hungarian epoch: "Szigeti Veszedelem" Zrnyi killed Sulyeman. (This is not true, but sounds good. And the epoch was written by Zrnyi's grandson.)

These pictures remind me of this one:

It's the exodus of the defenders of a Greek city called Mesolonghi during the War of Independance against the Ottomans. (the same city in whoch Lord Byron died). When the food and gunpowder were finished, the defenders attempted an exodus, putting the women and children in the middle. Many died, but others managed to make it to safery.

The basis of a democratic state is liberty. Aristotle, Politics

Those that can give up essential liberty to obtain a temporary safety deserve neither liberty nor safety. Benjamin Franklin
