Johannes Kepler’s dedication of his Astronomia nova (1609) to emperor Rudolph II speaks about his final victory over God Mars who for a long time withstood his attempts to defeat him before he, Kepler, finally succeeded:
"They would certainly say that it is he through whom all armies conquer, all military leaders triumph, and all kings rule, without whose aid no one ever honorably took a single captive. Let them now feast their eyes with looking at him, captured through my martial effort (meo Marte captum).
Those who admire Roman greatness would say that he is the begetter of the Kings Romulus and Remus, the preserver of the City, protector of the Citizens, Supporter of the Empire, by whose favor the Romans discovered military discipline, improved and perfected it, and subjugated the orb of the world. Let them therefore give thanks at his being confined and at his being acquired as a happy omen for the House of Austria.”
