Stormy intimate life of Generalissimo Suvorov - the winner on the battlefield and in bed

Alexander Vasilyevich Suvorov is rightfully among the ten best commanders in history. Everyone knows him as a winner, a father to soldiers and a man of principle. But it is customary to keep silent about one side of the hero's life, because it is quite ambiguous. It turns out that Suvorov was a great lover of women. In relations with the fair sex, he was quite liberated even by today's standards.

Alexander Suvorov grew up a flimsy and sickly child. No one could have imagined that he would make a brilliant military career. The father of the future commander, the godson and orderly of Peter the Great, was sure that his son would become an official. But Alexander himself did not think about it. He dreamed of military campaigns and battles, and his toys were soldiers and weapons.

At the age of 14, Suvorov had a fleeting affair with one of the Empress's ladies-in-waiting and lost his innocence. Even then, in a skinny teenager, one could see a skilled conqueror of ladies' hearts. But the charmers were not a priority for Alexander at that time. He craved military glory and courtly love affairs bored him. He joined the Life Guards Semenovsky Regiment and directed all his efforts to build a career.

Alexander Vasilyevich created the family very late, being an old man by the standards of the 18th century. At the age of 44, Suvorov married the daughter of a retired general-in-chief, Princess Varvara Prozorovskaya. The bride was 20 years younger than the groom, and it was not a love match. Suvorov's father insisted on the wedding, who was afraid that he would die without seeing his grandchildren.

As expected, a hastily concocted marriage without feelings turned out to be unsuccessful. Suvorov was not interested in family life. He disappeared in military campaigns and won brilliant victories one after another. The young general's wife wasted no time. One by one, she had affairs with young playboys from aristocratic families.

Suvorov had heard rumors about Varvara's adventures, but he did not attach importance to them. He believed that marriages were made to heaven. He was ready to put up with his wife's behavior, as long as it did not harm his service. But then his wife gave birth to a son Arkady, whose father was clearly not Suvorov. After this, the commander began to insist on the dissolution of the marriage. At that time, for a divorce, the nobles had to obtain the permission of the Empress. However, Catherine II was in no hurry to give the go-ahead.

Then Suvorov simply separated from his unfaithful wife. His marriage becomes just a formality. The commander paid 1200 rubles a year to his former commander, so she did not feel violated. And Alexander Vasilyevich began a new, eventful life of a bachelor. For the remaining 26 years of his life, Suvorov more than made up for all the lost time during the years of marriage.

He became interested in nudism, got to know the taste of group sex and began to do what he always condemned in others — to take mistresses on military campaigns. At the end of the 18th century, nudism was just emerging in Russia. We can safely say that Suvorov was one of those who stood at its origins. At that time, the military commander already known throughout Europe surprised his contemporaries with his lifestyle. The French king Louis XVIII, who sincerely admired Suvorov's talents, wrote about him as follows:

I must say that the changes that happened to Suvorov at the age of 44 surprised many unspeakably. The general was considered a model of chastity, and some even assumed that he secretly belonged to the sect of the Eunuchs. After parting with his wife, Alexander Vasilyevich diametrically changed his attitude to women and to life in general. He began to preach nudity in nature, calling it a way to "multiply the vital juices", while not at all shy of subordinates.

Over time, soldiers and officers got used to seeing their boss without trousers among the birches and were no longer surprised by anything. The fact that another could irreparably ruin his reputation and career, a brilliant military commander who glorified himself in dozens of battles, got away with it. Contemporaries described how in one of the campaigns, after a risky skirmish with the enemy, Suvorov suddenly threw off his clothes and fell naked on the grass. "Take off your clothes, it's so beautiful," he exclaimed at the same time.

Some of the subordinates remained standing idols, but many followed the example of the boss, whom they loved as their own father. On the same day in the evening, having dinner with officers, Suvorov told everyone that nudism has the property of increasing the combat capability of soldiers by 20% and only because of this it is not worth avoiding temptation.

The Generalissimo himself did not avoid temptations at all. His valet Proshka Dubasov, a rascal and a drunkard, became a faithful assistant in amorous affairs, on whom Suvorov could completely rely. A faithful servant regularly supplied women to the camp tent or to the chief's apartment. At the same time, not only noblewomen, but also middle-class women and even peasant women were in demand.

Over time, Alexander Vasilyevich got into the taste of love adventures so much that he began to organize whole orgies, in which 20-25 people participated. Even foreign courtesans were sometimes prescribed for such pleasures. Dubasov firmly knew his business and studied the tastes of his master well. And for Suvorov, the origin of the lady did not matter, but her passion, passion and experience were important.

But in the last years of the 18th century, Alexander Vasilyevich began to pass. Lovelace was already over 60 — a deep old age by the standards of that time. Many believe that syphilis, received from one of the many passions, was the cause of the sharp deterioration in the health of the commander, who always led a healthy lifestyle. One way or another, but the "little giant of big sex" arranged love marathons less and less often, and then completely abandoned them.

But on the other hand, it was the period of the highest heyday of Suvorov's military glory, who made the famous Swiss and Italian campaigns. But even after losing his strength, the generalissimo sometimes retired with the ladies and continued to supply them to his closest associates.

After his death, Suvorov was spoken of as "a great comrade and friend whose loss cannot be made up for." The commander was connected with his subordinates and friends not only by military achievements, but also by love exploits. Gradually, the stories of his amorous adventures were consigned to oblivion. After all, it is not fitting for a military genius to have such dubious details of a biography.

In this regard, in all fiction and biographical books, Alexander Vasilyevich is presented as an ascetic man, deeply believing and shunning carnal pleasures. A stormy intimate life is not the only thing that was hushed up in order to create an ideal textbook Suvorov — his military exploits were also thoroughly revised, among which there were not quite worthy ones.
