Imperial and Royal Hussars

Together with the Dragoons and Uhlans, the Imperial and Royal Hussars German: kuk Husaren, made up the cavalry of the Austro-Hungarian Army from 1867 to 1918, both in the Common Army and in the Hungarian Landwehr, where they were known as the Royal Hungarian Hussars ku Husaren

The Austrian monarchy, weakened by the losing the war against Prussia in 1866, had to effectively guarantee the autonomy of Kingdom of Hungary in the so-called Compromise of 15 March 1867 As a result, the Hungarian half of the Empire immediately began to establish its own army, the Royal Hungarian Landwehr Hungarian: Magyar Királyi Honvédség The cavalry of the Hungarian Landwehr was made up of the Landwehr Hussars

Following the signing of the Compromise, the Austrian half of the Empire also started to build an army, the Imperial-Royal Landwehr German: kk Landwehr The two new Landwehr forces thus existed alongside the Common Army Gemeinsame Armee, the imperial army of the whole Empire In effect this meant that Austria-Hungary had three separate armies at the same time
