Unser König ist wahnsinnig! 
Hans-Dieter Otto
Our King is Crazy!
Mad Rulers from Caligula to Ludwig II

In drawings or paintings of »insane asylums« from earlier centuries we can see how chained, mentally deranged prisoners were held like animals under the supervision of »taskmasters« in inhumane conditions. With contorted faces and wide open or rolled eyes, they vegetate apathetically, a gruesome vision of abject misery that isn’t easily forgotten. Everywhere in the world and at the most diverse times there have been mentally ill people, from antiquity until modernity. Some of them were famous and powerful rulers – often with fatal consequences for their subjects.

The Greatest Surprise Coups in Military History

Just as in antiquity the Persians, led by their kings Xerxes and Darius, were not able to conquer the Greeks in spite of their enormous advantages in numbers, materials and military might, neither the French in 1954 nor the Americans in the 1960s were able to steer the course of the Vietnam War in their favor.
