                 LIFEGUARD POLISH UHLANS 1809-1815

Having been impressed with a guard of Polish cavalry in 1807 Napoleon ordered that a Polish light cavalry regiment be raised and added to his growing Imperial Guard. This was done, and the regiment saw its first action in Spain in the following year. The dates for this set start in 1809 because it was in this year that the regiment was first issued lances, and the men were henceforth known as the Polish Lancers. In this guise they performed well in many of their emperor’s campaigns, and some even accompanied him into exile on Elba in 1814.
