I have seen that a couple times.  Jan Hus is the man but, for the record, my avatar on this site is Hussite general Jan Zizka.

A general in an eyepatch: badass! And sure enough: "After he died, he had his skin turned into a war drum so he could lead his soldiers even after his death."

Jeezam, it gets even better!

Žižka won despite being outnumbered one to five, despite leading a peasant army against professional soldiers and despite being entirely blind! Yes, at the Battle of Kutná Hora, Žižka was completely blind. He had lost his remaining eye during the siege of Rabi a few months earlier.

I have this on the wall in my home office.  It is about 100 years old.
