The necktie originates from Croatia

The necktie, that most ubiquitous of modern accessories, originates from Croatia. It came to Western Europe in the 17th century, courtesy of Croatian mercenaries who served under Louis XIII, the King of France. He liked it so much that he made these ties a mandatory accessory for Royal gatherings, and to honor the Croatian soldiers, he gave this clothing piece the name “La Cravate”.
