Artist's Description

The Polish Hussars Polish: Husaria) or Winged Hussars, were one of the main types of the cavalry in the Crown of the Kingdom of Poland, (later also introduced into the Army of the Grand Duchy of Lithuania), between the 16th and 18th centuries. When this cavalry type was first introduced by the Serbian and Hungarian mercenary horsemen in the beginning of the 16th century, they served as light cavalry banners in the Polish army; by the second half of the 16th century and after Stephen Báthory’s reforms hussars had been transformed into heavy armored shock cavalry. Until the reforms of the 1770s the husaria banners were considered the elite of the Polish-Lithuanian Commonwealth cavalry.
