The Dragoons appeared in Spain in the first half of the sixteenth century.

Originally they were simply a mounted infantry that the mobility

and speed took as an advantage.

His armament was the rifle.

Though they were not an infantry in a beginning the cavalry he was despising them, little by little they were coming closer the line riders.

In the year 1808 there were 8 regiments all with yellow uniforms, chest and neck of different colors as characteristic emblem carried on a neck crossed sword and a laurel branch.
