In 1191, two crusaders – Duke Leopold V of Austria and King Richard the Lionheart of England – got into an argument during the Siege of Acre. In December 1192, while returning home from the Holy Land, Richard was arrested by Leopold on the outskirts of Vienna. The huge silver ransom, which Leopold managed to extort from the English people in exchange for Richard's release, originated the legend of Robin Hood. Leopold used the silver to build the Wiener Neustadt fortress and the original Austrian Mint in Vienna.
