Milos Obilic At The Battle of Kosovo 1389

In 1389, Prince Lazar, Serbia’s King Leonidas, stopped the Ottomans from advancing into Europe. Outnumbered more than three to one, he died at the battle of Kosovo which left both armies virtually destroyed. By the time, after finally conquering Serbia in 1459, that the Islamic Ottoman hordes marched onto Vienna, Europe was ready. They were repelled. Had the Serbs not stopped them in Kosovo in 1389 however, the outcome would likely have been much less favourable.
