Francuscy żandarmi/ French gendarmes
During italian Wars heavy cavalry was still used especially in French armies. So called gendarmes continued knightly traditions of the middle ages. Their task was to deliver decisive charge and fighting against similar heavy cavalry of the enemy.
Battles of the Italian wars quickly verified these beliefs. At Fornovo French mercenary infantry repulsed Italian knights. In later battles French gendarmes faced power of the pikemen blocks and later firearms.
