  Kara Mustafa
Merzifonlu Kara Mustafa Pasha (1634-1683) was an Ottoman military leader who was at the center of the empire's last attempts at expansion into central and eastern Europe.
Mustafa is universally described in contemporary Christian sources as both greedy and villainous.
After distinguishing himself, Mustafa became a vizier in his own right, and by 1663, commander of the Ottoman Grand Fleet of the Aegean Sea.

 Kara Mustafa Pasha Information
Merzifonlu Kara Mustafa Pasha (1634/1635 – December 25, 1683) was an Ottoman military leader and vizier who was a central character in the empire's last attempts at expansion into central and eastern Europe.
But on September 12, 1683, the Austrians and their Polish allies under King Jan Sobieski took advantage of Mustafa's incompetence and poor disposition of his troops winning the Battle of Vienna with a devastating flank attack led by Sobieski's Polish cavalry.
He suffered death by strangulation, and his head was delivered to Sultan Mehmed IV in a velvet bag, which was the capital punishment inflicted on high-ranking persons in the Ottoman Empire.

The result of the decisive attack at Kahlenberg, just outside Vienna, sealed both the fate of Grand Vizier Kara Mustafa (who was beheaded in Belgrade on orders of Sultan Mehmet IV, on the Christmas day of the same year) and the Ottoman expansionism in Europe.
Today Kara Mustafa Pasa's skinned and stuffed head is still kept at Vienna's Historisches Museum, although mercifully it's no longer on display in its glass case like it had been for over two hundred years.
