Hero on horseback

Alexander Suvorov was a Russian military leader, considered a national hero. He is considered one of the greatest commanders in Russian and world history, never losing a major battle that he had commanded. He was Count of Rymnik, Count of the Holy Roman Empire, Prince of Italy, and the last Generalissimo of the Russian Empire.
