18th C. Female soldiers

Historical: Catherine II's Amazon Guard:
Good information about this 100-strong ceremonial unit raised by Potemkin in march 1787 from wives and daughters of soldiers of the Balaklava Greek Settled Battalion to escort the Empress during her tour of Crimea with Joseph II on the *excellent* Oderint Dum Probent blog dedicated to Russian military history in the 17th & 18th C., and full of rare information.

Imaginary: Les Carabinières de la Reine
(Btw I also posted on the Alternate History Forum some musings about the possible uniforms of an imaginary Teutonic Order surviving in the 18th C. as a nominally independent military border district Banat).
