As relies on the forum of heroes, it will be about heroes. Before us is the famous Eugene of Savoy. It is not related to the Habsburg dynasty. Eugene comes from a noble family of rulers of Savoy (Locality in the south-east of France and the Piedmont region in Italy). He was born in Paris. His mother was Olympia Mancini, the niece of Cardinal Mazarin. After Olympia’s tumultuous romance with Louis XIV-Korol the sun, and the suspicion of the poisoning case, she safely left the city and more than her beauty and frivolous disposition did not threaten any Parisian woman. By the way, thanks to her, the hairstyle a la Mancini entered the history of hairdressing. This is when the parting part spreads the hair on two sides, and, magnificently whipped over the temples, they descend on the shoulders of curled locks. The son of Olympia Eugene went to war with the Turks and it was there that he gained fame through the ages. Thanks to him, Vienna was saved in 1683 (remember the times of the great-grandfather Maria Theresa and his preacher Abraham?) Eugene of Savoy went down in history as the savior of Europe from the Muslim conquest. Squares, frigates, military units are named after him. In Vienna, he is a national hero. By the way, Anna Austrians, the mother of Louis XIV, did not like his mother more than anyone. Louis reigned 72 years old, died from gangrene of the leg, because he believed that amputation was below royal dignity and did not leave a single direct heir after him.
