  Jan Karol Chodkiewicz - LoveToKnow 1911
JAN KAROL CHODKIEWICZ (1560-1621), Polish general, was the son of Hieronymus Chodkiewicz, castellan of Wilna.
Chodkiewicz's own army, unpaid for years, abandoned him at last en masse in order to plunder the estates of their political opponents, leaving the grand hetman to carry on the war as best he could with a handful of mercenaries paid out of the pockets of himself and his friends.
Chodkiewicz was one of the few magnates who remained loyal to the king, and after helping to defeat the rebels in Poland a fresh invasion of Livonia by the Swedes recalled him thither, and once more he relieved Riga besides capturing Pernau.

Chodkiewicz was one of the few magnates who remained loyal to the king, and after helping to defeat the rebels in Poland a fresh invasion of Livonia by the Swedes recalled him thither, and once more in 1609 he relieved Riga besides capturing Parnava.
Meanwhile the war with Muscovy broke out, and Chodkiewicz — who opposed this war - was sent against Moscow with an army of 2,000 men though if there had been a spark of true patriotism in Poland he could easily have marshaled 100,000.
The Muscovite war had no sooner been ended by the treaty of Deulina than Chodkiewicz was hastily dispatched southwards to defend the southern frontier against the Turks, who after the catastrophe of Cecora (grand royal hetman Zolkiewski died there), had high hopes of conquering Poland altogether.
