We knew Carl Gustaf Mannerheim was a finnish war hero and a great dancer, but the extent of his skills were not revealed before finding this film. Here you can see him in Russia in 1887 dancing with his study partners at the Nicholas Cavalry School. It looks like he knew how to breakdance even back then.
