Schiller took the legendar fight for liberty that has its roots in the 15th century as ideal dramatic story in the time of the French Revolution. Today it is known that this fight against Habsburg never existed.Also the "strange" on the power is not at all true.But for Schiller it was the stuff to write his unforgettable words with his poetic freedom.For Switzerland a real mythology began developing,although there are similarities with Denmark.Doesn't matter - his work one year before his death (1805)remains a masterpiece.

Rossini,inspired by Schiller,composed later the opera "Guillaume Tell". The Swiss Post Office took its known refrain as sign for the cars.
