    Sure as heck doesn't look like Manfred

    Is it Eddie Rickenbacker? Looks like it and he was a car racer too so that would make sense

    Luís de Meneses, 3rd Count of Ericeira, was a portuguese general that took part in the Restoration Wars against Spain, helping to score a couple victories but his most memorable works were as a minister of finances and economy, in which he promoted semi-protectionism and fostered the manufactories of cloth, glass, leather and silk in order to make the kingdom less dependent on imports and on colonial commodities. He was however victim of a severe depression and commited suicide, leaving his legacy quite unfinished.

    Coincidentally read an article about him today.

    With those sideburns and blue eyes, pretty sure it's french marshal Michel Ney

    Here's an easy one. Was present in a medieval battle where a heavy cavalry based army was defeated by infantry.

    My first guess would be Edward the Black Prince.

    Think I know the battle if not the guy, but I'm gonna let someone else try their hand at this.

    Coat of arms as well as architecture show us it can't be Agincourt (sounded like a trap anyways), image indicates the battle was romanticed later, so my guess is it's battle of the colden spurs.
    Wikipedia informs me that the guy in that pic was the leader of the Flemish, William of Jülich.
