A quote often attributed to the German adventurer, aristocrat, poet, and liberator of nations Karl Frederic 'Karnstein' von Mannheim. Karl Frederic, often called by his moniker 'Karnstein', is the second son of the 8th Baron of Mannheim and brother to the German diplomat Wilhelm Franz von Mannheim. Karnstein is known for his various misadventures first in Southern Europe and later in South America, where he would fight with the locals in their revolt against the tyrannical Spanish regime. Known for his innovative way of war (learned from his experience fighting against the Ottomans in the Balkans) and the various plays he wrote whilst in-campaign, where Karnstein would distinguish himself in the various engagements he would participate in the Spanish American war of Independence. Known as one of the founders of various Latin American nations, Karnstein would meet his end in the siege of Cali where he would sacrifice himself in defense of the City's central square, where he would utter the quote above moments before he got shot in the head by a Spanish marksman."I say, let them come! There's a Roman soldier in Nova Eboracum who still draws breath!"
"Mihailović promised us freedom. He has, so far, only given us death. That man be damned!"
