The Battle of Warsaw (also known as Battle of Rakowitz) took place on 31 July 1705 near Warsaw. Swedish forces under Carl Nieroth defeated the Polish-Lithuanian-Saxonian forces under Otto Arnold von Paykull.
Swedish casualties were some 150 killed and 150 wounded, against 500 dead and 1,000 wounded Saxons and Poles. Some 300 Poles had also drowned in the Vistula River under pursuit by the Smålands cavalry. Captured allied forces included General von Paykull. The Swedes also captured important documents including letters about the 'Johann Patkul and Otto Arnold von Paykull campaign' against the Swedes, which informed of a possible attack by Peter I against Warsaw to dethrone the Polish king Stanisław Leszczyński. Charles XII then moved with his army to secure Leszczyński's coronation and foil the enemy tactic.
In Ireland, it was believed to be found in Belfast, where it was first found in 1902. At first, it turned out to be "Harpalus puncticollis", a species described by Paykull in the same year. But, later on it was confirmed that it was actually "Ophonus rufibarbis".
After some years in French service von Paykull returned to Saxony where he eventually became Lieutenant General around 1700.

The battle was part of the campaign plan created by Johann Patkul and Otto Arnold von Paykull to crush Charles XII's army with overwhelming odds in a gathered allied offensive, which was to be executed in order; the Russian general Boris Sheremetev would engage the Swedish general Adam Ludwig Lewenhaupt in Courland and there beat him to secure the march under Georg Benedict Ogilvy, towards the strongly fortified Grodno. Here Ogilvy was believed able to withstand Charles long enough for the Saxon stationed army under Johann Matthias von der Schulenburg to flank through Krakow, and subsequently engage the Swedes from behind – creating a strategic "hammer and anvil" strike, together with Ogilvy's frontal 'Grodno' troops. At the same time, Paykull would gather a force of Saxons, Poles and Lithuanians and march towards Warsaw to interrupt the coronation of pretender king Stanisław Leszczyński.
Leiopus punctulatus is a species of longhorn beetles of the subfamily Lamiinae. It was described by Paykull in 1800, and is known from Europe. The beetles measure 6-8 millimetres in length, and can live for approximately 1-2 years. They inhabit poplar trees, especially the white poplar, but also "Populus tremula" and "Populus nigra". The species is endangered in Central Europe due to a decrease in the white poplar population.
Part of the Great Northern War constituted a civil war in Poland (1704–1706), between the forces of the Warsaw Confederation, supporting the pretender king Stanisław Leszczyński, and the Sandomierz Confederation, supporting king August II the Strong. Sweden supported Leszczyński against August, and sent a contingent of troops to Leszczyński's aid, under Carl Nieroth. In July 1705 the Saxon commander Otto Arnold von Paykull and his allies from the Warsaw Confederation decided to take on the numerically inferior Swedish forces loyal to Leszczyński.
The Swedish forces consisted of three cavalry regiments and a small force of 60 infantrymen. The total size of the Swedish army under Carl Nieroth was around 2,000 men. The Polish-Lithuanian-Saxon army consisted of 3,500 Saxon cuirassiers and 6,000 Polish cavalrymen. Its main commander was the Saxonian general Otto Arnold von Paykull; the Polish-Lithuanian forces were led by Stanisław Chomętowski, Stanisław Rzewuski, Adam Mikołaj Sieniawski, Michał Serwacy Wiśniowiecki and Stanisław Ernest Denhoff.
In 1705, von Paykull was captured by the Swedes at the Battle of Warsaw. He was brought to Stockholm where he was executed on 4 February 1707 for high treason due to his service for Saxony, though being born in a Swedish province. Known as an alchemist, he tried to escape execution by promising annual deliverance of gold to king Charles XII of Sweden but was rebuffed.
In early March 1705 the Russian Field Marshal Boris Sheremetyev set up a meeting with the Saxon general Otto Arnold von Paykull in order to agree to a common course of action in the ensuing campaign. The basis for the strategy was a plan developed by Johann Patkul as early as 1703, which envisioned a joint strike which would neutralize the Swedish army. von Paykull, inspired by Patkul's blueprint, advocated it as a way to lure Charles and the main Swedish army out of Greater Poland eastward towards Brest-Litovsk. This was to be accomplished by having the combined forces of the main Russian army under Ogilvy and von Paykull's troops stationed at Brest, which would force Charles to meet them in battle. At the same time the main Saxon army would attack Charles from the rear by sweeping through Poland out of Saxony, ultimately catching the Swedish army exposed. The plan seemed rather daring to Patkul and he suggested that the allies should first crush Lewenhaupt's army, before Ogilvy's troops approached Charles. Otherwise Ogilvy's rear would be threatened. A compromise was made between the two strategies and it was decided that Sheremetyev should engage Lewenhaupt at the same time as Ogilvy marched towards the strongly fortified city of Grodno. The belief was that there, behind fortifications, Oglivy would be able to withstand Charles long enough for the main Saxon army to arrive from Kraków. Meanwhile, von Paykull would attack with his combined Saxon–Polish force towards Warsaw in order to interrupt the coronation of Stanisław I.
