1. Okay, this one is more of a legend: El Cid was a powerful warrior in the middle ages, and died while he was defending Valencia (which he had recently taken) from the Almoravids. Afterwards he managed to win a battle despite being dead: his retainers took his corpse, put on the armor and stacked it into his trusted horse (Babieca), and the Almoravids just ran away when they saw the Castilian cavalry charging, led by a dead Cid.

  2. The fact that I understood the meme in few seconds and remember all this by heart because of a game(age of empires 2) I played like a decade ago amazes me.

  3. Oh my god thank you I read that story and never expested to hear from it again but you reminded me that it exists. That's so nice.
