Swiss mercenaries were a common sight throughout all of Europe during the Renaissance period. These fierce men were highly demanded in an era in which the military commanders were more inclined to hire corps of veteran and highly trained professional soldiers than resorting to feudal-style levies of unskilled numbers.

They developed a unique style of fighting that involved deep columns of men, armed with their famous long pikes, supported by halberdiers and skirmishers. Until the arrival of handguns to the European battlefields, any army incorporating enough units of Swiss infantry was considered impossible to beat.

Our figure depicts a halberdier dressed in the black and yellow characteristic from the canton of Uri.
