The Almanza Dragoons were part of the cream of Spanish forces selected to join General La Romana’s Corps sent to join French forces after the defeat of Prussia in 1807.
Returned to Spain by the British Royal Navy in 1808 they would taste defeat at the Battle of Medellin in March 1809, before their appearance at Talavera in the July.
The Almanza Regiment completes the five full regiments in the Spanish 2nd Cavalry Division.
