I do show a 7th Rosiori Nich II cavalry reg badge listed in my database-I will try to find it this weekend.

Thank you. I am looking forward to seeing it.

Do you know if the "Nicholas II" name of the regiment changed after the Russian revolution of 1917.

I believe there to be literally hundreds of regimental badges during the Royal period-these are but a few.

Thank you very much for the images of the badges.

Could you please identify the badges shown in the last image? Are all of them chest badges or some sholder board pins are also included?

Since I have posted the images of the badges of the hussar regiments, I think the remark was directed to me. But unfortunately I did not understand it.

The translation Rosior=Hussar is not really an appropiate one.

Regular cavalry.
But a translation is not realy indicated, as these names are characteristic to the Romanian traditions (the Rosii cavalry corps dates back to the 16th-17th century) as the Huszar is to the Hungarian one.

Cavalry is a more general term that encompasses many other cavalry types such as hussars, dragoons or cuirassiers.

I guess that some sort of a translation is needed, in order to properly identify this type of cavalry corps of the Romanian army. Indeed, among the many cavalry types, the ones that made it to the modern (even contemporary) times in many different European armies is the light cavalry usually known as hussars. And my opinion is that the Rosiori corps of the Romanian army represents a light cavalry that resembles most the hussars of other armies. Do you think Red Hussars is a better name for them?

The term hussar might indeed have originated from 15th century Hungary, but then it described a type of light cavalry that did not exist in other armies of that time. But, as you probably know, the hussars were adopted by many other armies such as the Prussian, French or British and they do not all acknowledge the Hungarian origin. Some British sources say for example that the word hussar is supposed to have come from the Italian corsaro as they used more or less the same tactics in the beginning. But this is a completely different issue.

The Rosiori were the regular cavalry untis of the Romanian army prior to 1890. The only other cavalry units were the calarasi, who were the territorial cavalry. There was no light/heavy cavalry.
Probably the closest equivalent in the western army would be the uhlans.
But I would stick to the Romanian term.
