  7. The King of Poland Jan III Sobieski prepared a relief expedition to Vienna
    during the summer of 1683, so honouring his obligations to the treaty. He
    left his own nation virtually undefended when departing from Kraków on 15
    August. Sobieski covered this with a stern warning to Imre Thököly, the
    leader of Hungary, whom he threatened with destruction if he tried to take
    advantage of the situation — which Thököly in fact attempted. Jan Kazimierz
    Sapieha the Younger delayed the march of the Lithuanian army, devastating
    the Hungarian Highlands (now Slovakia) instead, and arrived in Vienna only
    after it had been relieved

  11. Didn’t catch it in the documentary if it was there, but an interesting fact
    about the siege is the Polish Hussar cavalry charge is the largest single
    cavalry charge in history.
