Bohemia, Ludwig II Jagiello, 1516 - 1526

|Bohemia|, |Bohemia,| |Ludwig| |II| |Jagiello,| |1516| |-| |1526||heller|
Ludwig (Louis) II of the The Jagiellonian dynasty, was King of Hungary, Croatia and Bohemia from 1516 to 1526. In 1526 Louis II met Suleiman the Magnificent in the famous Battle of Mohcs. The Hungarian Army was half the size of the Suleiman's force. The Ottoman army was fatigued by a long march and struggled through the marshy terrain. But Louis did not attack; it would have been unchivalrous to attack the enemy when they were not yet ready for battle. More than 14,000 Hungarian soldiers, more than half the army, were killed in the battle. During retreat the Hungarian king fell from his horse in a river and was drowned by his heavy armor. Then next day, Suleiman gave orders to keep no prisoners; 2,000 were massacred. The battle put an end to independent Hungary; what remained clear of Ottomans was ruled by the Habsburgs, beginning with Ferdinand I.

Probus, Summer 276 - September 282 A.D.

|Probus|, |Probus,| |Summer| |276| |-| |September| |282| |A.D.||antoninianus|
After Probus left 400,000 barbarians dead in the fields of Germany and Gaul, all the tribes of the north were terrified to peace. He then marched east, defeating the Blemmyes with tremendous slaughter. Knowing he was next, the Persian king sued for peace and attempted to buy Probus' favor with splendid presents. Probus was dining upon the most common food when the ambassadors were introduced. Without even casting his eyes upon them, he said that if their master did not give proper satisfaction to Rome, he would lay Persia as desolate and as naked as the crown of his head. As he spoke the Emperor took off his cap and showed the baldness of his head to the ambassadors. His conditions were gladly accepted. Thus Probus earned the title Restitutor Orbis or "Restorer of the World."

Crusaders, Frankish Greece, Duchy of Athens, Guy II de La Roche, 1287 - 1308

|Crusaders|, |Crusaders,| |Frankish| |Greece,| |Duchy| |of| |Athens,| |Guy| |II| |de| |La| |Roche,| |1287| |-| |1308||denier|
Guy II de la Roche was the Duke of Athens from 1287, the last duke of his family. He succeeded as a minor on the death of his father, William I, at a time when the duchy of Athens had exceeded the Principality of Achaea in wealth, power, and importance. Guy was originally under the tutorship and regency of his mother, Helena Angelina Komnene, who was forced to make submission to Isabella of Villehardouin. In 1299, Guy was engaged to Matilda, daughter of Isabella and and her husband, Florent of Hainaut. Charles objected, as his permission had not been sought, but Pope Boniface VIII intervened on the young couple's behalf. In 1307, Guy was made bailli of Achaea by its new prince, Philip I of Taranto. He governed well, but for barely a year. He died, 5 October 1308, at the age of twenty-eight, but was respected and renowned for his chivalry and manners.Frankokratia_Map

Some writers maintain that the horn of plenty should be written, in the singular, cornucopi, and in the plural, cornuacopi. U.S. English dictionaries, however, typically spell the singular, cornucopia and the plural cornucopias.

Syllaeus was chief minister for Obodas III and he briefly shared rule of Nabataea with Aretas IV after Obodas death. But Syllaeus had a powerful enemy. In 24 B.C.

|Nabataean| |Kingdom|, |Nabataean| |Kingdom,| |Rabbel| |II,| |70| |-| |106| |A.D.||AE| |19|
Rabbel II was the last Nabataean king, ruling 70/71 to 106 A.D. An inscription identifies Rabbel as the son of Malichus, who was the son of Aretas; it also identifies Gamilat and Hagaru as daughters of Malichus, thus sisters of Rabbel. Rabbel's two sisters also appear on his coins confirming Rabbel married his own sisters, a Nabataean royal tradition. Gamilat was his first wife. Rabbel may have married his sister Gamilat as early as 76 A.D. and she may have lived to 105 A.D. Gamilat appears on drachms dated from regnal year 11 to 22, c. 81 - 92 A.D. The bronze coinage is undated.

In Malichus' time, Nabataean trade dwindled as the Romans diverted the perfume and spice cargos to Egypt. In 67 A.D. Malichus II sent an army of 5,000 horsemen and 1,000 soldiers to help Titus quash the Jewish revolt.
