In 2016 Slovakia commemorates 230 years since the death of one of its historic, or perhaps we should say legendary personalities: Count de Beňovský. He was the first Slovak to visit four continents and the first European to sail in the northern Pacific Ocean. He fought in the Seven Years' War, the Polish uprising, even in the war for American independence. Meanwhile he was crowned the king of Madagascar. Sounds unbelievable? Listen to learn more about the exciting life of this diplomat, explorer, writer and yes, you heard right, the king of Madagascar, Móric Beňovský.
