Have military provenance. In the sixteenth century Croatian riders wore a scarf that constituted from a ribbon with long ends hanging. Riders have won in wars with the Turks military merits and even in war for 30 years, so that King Louis XIV (1638-1715) has got a Croatian guard. Their scarves have excited so much the Parisian nobility, that they made a fashion out of them. Scarf was thinned and acquired long ends hanging down or was made to a ribbon, which resulted in tie. Name of the tie comes from a popular form of derivative of the word "croate".
