Description

Dragoons are polyvalent units with the great particularity of having to know how to fight both on horseback and on foot. They could therefore be used as simple horsemen (with a straight sword, called a stave), or use their horses to deploy quickly as infantry. At certain times (1805 – 1806) some dragoon regiments no longer had horses…

At most, the Empire would have 30 dragoon regiments, some of which were later transformed into Light Horse regiments. Under Napoleon I the dragoon regiments served mainly in Spain.
