Croatian Historical Figure. Fran Kristo Frankapan was known for his seventeenth-century victories (with Petar Zrinski) against the Ottoman Empire. These victories were reversed, however, when the lands they had gained were partitioned by treaties between the Ottomans and the Habsburg Empire. Following a failed plot to overthrow Austrian rule, Frankapan and Zrinski were both taken captive by the Austrian Habsburgs on April 18, 1670 and their estates were looted. During his captivity, Frankapan translated Moliere's play "George Dandin". Frankapan and Zrinski were executed in Wiener Neuestadt. Their bodies were repatriated to Croatia in 1919.
