Hungarian Insurrection

In the Kingdom of Hungary, the insurrection (nemesi felkelés) was the term used to describe the aristocratic contingent to protect the borders and the king. Theoretically it was abolished in the revolution of 1848/49. However, the last insurrection took place in 1741 to defend the lands of Queen Maria Theresa against the invasion of Frederick II of Prussia. The term was still used during the coalition wars. Thus, a considerable number of Insurrection troops were involved in the Battle of Raab in 1809.

Lancers of the Guard

In 1807 Napoleon authorized the raising of a guard regiment of Polish light horse. His main object in so doing was probably political, a first token of his promise to establish an independent Polish state.

Whatever his motives,he obtained the services of some of the finest soldiers who ever served under him. Qualifications for enlistment were high. Applicants must be landowners or the sons of landowners. Some financial backing was certainly necessary, as those accepted had to provide their own uniforms, saddlery and horses.

The men came mainly from Murat's Polish 'Honor Guard' and volunteers. Majority of them were nobles and were better educated than rank and file of the French Guard who - in big part - could only read and write. This situation however was only in the beginning, later on their ranks were filled up with veterans selected from every Polish cavalry regiment.

German Uhlans WW1

In 1914, lances were still being carried by regiments in the British, Indian, French, German, Italian, Portuguese, Spanish, Japanese, Ottoman, Belgian, Argentinian, and Russian armies, amongst others. Almost all German cavalry (hussars, dragoons and cuirassiers as well as uhlans) retained a steel lance as their primary weapon.
