He was shut into a barrel and rolled to his death from a hill in Budapest, which today bears his name and skid marks.

DASHBOARD NAVIGATOR Under the reign of Louis I, the palatine of Hungary once lost his way in the countryside and asked a sturdy young agricultural worker for directions using a now-proverbial phrase: “Which way to Buda, peasant?” The ‘peasant’, Miklós Toldi, was duly offended and replied by picking up a gigantic wooden beam and pointing it in the desired direction.
