Editor says, in this post we explore an article on Historum notice board and repurposed from the Wikipedia which states ~ The Battle of Narva on 19 November 1700 was an early battle in the Great Northern War. A Swedish relief army under Charles XII of Sweden defeated a Russian siege force three times its size. Before, Charles XII had forced Denmark-Norway to sign the Treaty of Travendal. Narva was not followed by further advances of the Swedish army into Russia, instead, Charles XII turned southward to expel August the Strong from Livonia and Poland-Lithuania. Peter the Great took Narva in a second battle in 1704. Changed date of Great War to 1913 based on feedback from Tom Bornholdt - thanks Editorial comments are entered in [light green] typeface.
