Defense of Pest

Brave Nicholas and 400 horsemen.

Paragraph image 924

Defeat was imminent, but at the last moment, brave Nicholas rushed in with four hundred horsemen. They suddenly attacked the Turks from the flank and the city was liberated. Contemporaries spread rumors about the young military leader Zrinski all over Europe, and said that God himself had sent him at a decisive moment. After that, Zrinsko's reputation grew considerably, and he was declared the ban of Croatia.
