In 1925 a female dog belonging to a Greek border guard strayed across into the Bulgarian frontier. Her master crossed the border in order to retrieve her and was promptly shot by a Bulgarian frontier guard. The late Greek’s comrades then attacked the Bulgarian border post, killing 48.

Dutch rebels defeat the Spanish Empire in the Battle of Heiligerlee during the Eighty Years War. Angered by decades of heavy taxation and religious persecution by the Habsburg monarchs, the Dutch began a rebellion in 1568.

The Spanish initially avoided confronting the Dutch rebels, waiting instead for reinforcements from the Count of Meghem to strengthen their army. On 23 May 1568, the Dutch cavalry force was able to lure the Spanish army toward the monastery of Heligerlee where the bulk of the rebel army lay in ambush.
