ª
 
We can find various portraits of villains in the literature and discover different motives for crimes they commit. One of those villians is Konrad Wallendrod, the character created by Adam Mickiewicz, who commits crimes on the basis of partiotic reasons. Walter Ald has been kidnaped and grown up by Teutonic Knights. Seeking freedom for beloved country - Lithuana - which was being plundered by Teutonic Knights he decides to destroy the enemy for all cost. In the name of this idea he first slains count Wallenrod, which he encounters during of of Crusades. After gaining fame among the Knights and earning their trust in battle Walter Alf pretends to be count Wallenrod and for his fame, gentleness and proper life is chosen as the Great Champion. Since then he leads the Teutonic Knights so they suffer a defeat after defeat. He leads them to death. Konrad Wallenrod has sacrificed his life to the idea of vengenance upon his enemy. He is responsible for many deaths, as well as the end of family happiness and his valour and fame as a knight. He then performed the very list crime - suicide.
