    In both Britain and Scandinavia? Canute the Great? Battle of the Helgea?

    The Battle of Texel between Michiel de Ruyter's fleet and the less prestigious Prince Rupert of the Rhine and the Comte d'Estrées.

    Was looking for Kijkduin but it turns out the battle is called Battle of Texel in English

    Sorry I forgot about this. I usually keep track of these things from the rep message which allows me to go to the thread.

    That's Admiral Horthy, mainly known for the jokes about being regent and naval officer, in a country without king or access to the sea, but also for his victory against the Italians in Otranto. It must be the greatest achievement of the Austrian-Hungarian Navy after the battle of Lissa.

    The naval battle at Otranto during WW1 is correct. That is Admiral Horthy resting after the battle, or he got wounded I don't remember.

    Ι think he got wounded, I can see a white bandage on his head. Next battle stays close with the Adriatic and Hungarian theme:

    I'm not sure what battle you mean, but the battle in question took place in the Balkans, not Poland. For an extra hint about the identity of the combatants, check the headgear of the prevailing side.

    To be honest I thought it were Mongols or something.

    Found out it's the battle of Krbava Field. Where the Ottoman's decisively defeated the Croatians.

    Krbava field is absolutely correct! The Ottomans defeated a numerically superior force of the Croatian Kingdom, by ambushing and encircling it. Croatia had been merged with Hungary back then, which is why I related to the previous battle about the adventures of Admiral Horthy in the Adriatic.

    Those look like Turks and... something else? Rather confused actually, it could be a mercenary army?
    Are those Mongols in the background? Or some other tribe?
    Could be any conflict in Central Asia or Eastern Europe or the Seljuks maybe.
    Could be the Kara Khanids fighting the Seljuks or any other Turkic empire.

    It's supposed to depict a pretty famous battle though.

    Involving the Mongols I suppose?
    The Turkic looking cavalry against the Mongols. I can't think of too many battles in the Middle East... Ain Jalut maybe?
    But if it is in Eastern Europe those could be Cumans or Bulgars or something... in which case it is probably Mohi or Kalka River.
