Footnote: The King's German Legion was a British Army unit of mostly expatriate German personnel during the Napoleonic period. The Legion was formed within months of the dissolution of the Electorate of Hanover in 1803 and constituted as a mixed corps by the end of 1803. Although the Legion never fought autonomously, it played a vital role in several campaigns, most notably the Walcheren Campaign, the Peninsular War, and the Hundred Days. The Legion was disbanded in 1816. Several of the units were incorporated into the army of the Kingdom of Hanover, and became later a part of the Imperial German Army after unification in 1871.
