The Black Brunswickers was a special troop raised by Frederick William Duke of Brunswick (1771-1815) in 1809. The regiment consisted of 'the best German gentlemen' and was known as the Death or Glory regiment, a name deriving from their distinctive death's head hat badge and their evident devotion to duty.
