  • impressive.German general Mathias von Schulenburg served on the island as a commander at the end of the 17th century and the beginning of the 18th century. He was the chief of the army of the Corfiots during the siege by the Turks, in 1716.
  • Matthias Johann Freiherr von der Schulenburg in Haselünne, located in present-day Lower Saxony was born. Even if Lower Saxony is a German Federal State today, so it's not quite right to call German von der Schulenburg. It is true that von der Schulenburg from services of the Republic of Venice, 1715 and 1716 led the defence of Corfu against the Turks as Commander-in-Chief of the national army in the rank of Imperial count. This was used in 1720, a monument him honour in Kerkira before access to the old fortress, which we can admire today at this point. The statue of this great man is certainly worth a quick look and a vacation photo.
