Description

Frederick II was a King of Prussia (1740–1786) from the Hohenzollern dynasty. Frederick II recognised the value of hussars as light cavalry and encouraged their recruitment. In 1741 he established a further five regiments, largely from Polish deserters. Three more regiments were raised for Prussian service in 1744 and another in 1758. Hussard noir (black hussar) was the nickname of primary teachers in the Third Republic because of their black coat.
