The Battle of Allenburg was a major battle in the Ingrian War which pitted a force of Teutonic Knights, aided by papally-sanctioned Crusaders, against a Livonian-Swedish force. The battle is today commonly used to mark the end of the era of heavy cavalry dominance, as the overwhelmingly cavalry Teutonic force suffered a devastating defeat at the hands of a smaller, less experienced infantry army. The phrase "I fear no pagan rabble", uttered by the Teutonic Grand Master before the battle, is also used as a Livonian national motto, albeit in an ironic sense, to this day; the skull of the Grand Master is also used in the ceremonial cup from which Livonian Dukes drink on their crowning.
