HISTORY: The 14th Cuirassier Regiment is a heavy cavalry regiment of the French Army under the First Empire, created in 1810 from the 2nd Cuirassier Regiment of the Kingdom of Holland. On June 10, 1810 (French historical records indicate September 18106), the 2nd Dutch Cuirassier Regiment became the 14th Cuirassier Regiment within the French Army. The regiment carried out the campaigns of 1811 in the Utrecht camp, that of 1812 in the Elbe observation corps and the 3rd reserve cavalry corps of the Grande Armée, those of 1813 and 1814 in the 1st cavalry corps of the Great Army. It was dissolved by royal decree of May 12, 1814 and its cavalry reinforced the other cuirassier regiments. The 14th cuirassier regiment initially kept its Dutch uniform6 then wore the uniform of the French cuirassiers from 1812. It was distinguished by its wine-red collars and sleeve facings and its turn-ups and legs of wine-coloured piped blue facing.
