ToL 014 – French Dragoon Early Napoleonic War – Size 54mm Painted
This is the only figure sold!
The word dragoon originally meant mounted infantry, who were trained in horse riding as well as infantry fighting skills.
However, usage altered over time and during the 18th century, dragoons evolved into conventional light cavalry units and personnel.
Dragoon regiments were established in most European armies during the late 17th and early 18th centuries.
The name is possibly derived from a type of firearm called a dragon carried by dragoons of the French Army.
There is no distinction between the words dragon and dragoon in French; both are referred to as dragon.
