The fastened troops of the Hapsburg Empire comprised some of the most strong forces of the Napoleonic Wars (1799-1815). although, from the outset the cavalry's larger command was once much less able than its infantry counterpart: appointments have been stimulated via nepotism and politics, which ended in instructions frequently being given to those that lacked adventure. The cavalry underwent many re-organisations and expansions during the wars that tried to redress those issues, and to modernise the strength as a complete. This name examines those procedures and records intimately the strategies, uniforms and kit of the Austrian cavalry, protecting Cuirassiers, Dragoons, Chevauxlegers, Hussars, Uhlan (lancer) and auxiliary devices.
