In the Battle of Râmnic (Turkish language: Boze Savaşı) (September 22, 1789) took place in Wallachia, near Râmnicu Sărat, during the Russo-Turkish War of 1787-1792. The Russian general Alexander Suvorov, acting together with the Habsburg general Prince Josias of Coburg, attacked the main Ottoman army under Grand Vizier Cenaze Hasan Pasha, following a grueling night march. In a pitched battle lasting only a few hours, the Russian and Habsburg forces, numbering about 25,000[citation needed], drove back the 60,000[citation needed] Ottoman soldiers, inflicting heavy casualties. For this victory, Suvorov was awarded the title of "Count of Râmnic" (граф Рымникский). The victory also resulted in the retreat of Ottoman forces from the Danubian Principalities, leading to the occupation of Wallachia by Habsburg troops.
