Fun facts in history:

At the Battle of Narva, as the Russian cavalry tried to flee across a bridge, the bridge collapsed under their weight and everyone fell in the water.

2 years after the battle, Charles Eugène de Croÿ, the Russian commander, died a Swedish POW but because of an old law he could not be buried because he was in debt. His mummified remains lay on display for 190 years in Estonia.
