All About History - - BATTLE ON THE ICE -

Prince Alexan­der Yaroslavich Nevsky leads the charge against the North­ern Cru­saders. Alexan­der is re­mem­bered as a great mil­i­tary leader, hav­ing al­ready de­feated Swedish cru­saders at the 1240 Bat­tle of the Neva River, which earned him the hon­orific ‘Nevsky’ for his vic­tory. The prince is de­picted with a halo as he was ven­er­ated as an Or­tho­dox saint in 1547.
