Founded in the 16th century for the exclusive use of the Hapsburg Royal family of Austria, the Royal Lipizzans are unquestionably the rarest, most aristocratic breed of horses in the world. The breed was first established by Archduke Charles at Lipizza (now part of Yugoslavia) and only a few hundred have ever existed at any one time.
In the first half of the 20th century, the breed was threatened a number of times as wars and other conflicts swept Europe. Many credit U.S. General George S. Patton for saving the horses during World War II from the Russian advance. The Lipizzans' celebrated escape was recounted in the Walt Disney movie, "Miracle of the White Stallions".
