Brandenburg Uhlans NTW Icon
Brandenburg Uhlans are a type of lancer cavalry in Napoleon: Total War. They are available to Prussia with the Heroes of the Napoleonic Wars DLC.


These light, fast troops are well seasoned and excellent in a charge.

The Brandenburg Uhlans are lucky enough to count some of the most experienced cavalrymen in Europe among their number. These men are excellent riders and can persuade their steeds into breathtaking acts of speed, be it to reach a surrounded friendly unit or to charge down a routing enemy unit. However, should these men find themselves in prolonged close combat they will quickly suffer heavy losses. They are best employed in short, sharp attacks that give them room to manoeuvre.

Historically, Major Fredirick von Schill of the Prussian army was the original commander of what would later become the Brandenburg Uhlans. It was his actions that would lead Fredrick II to rename the regiment. Schill decided that the newly-created state of Westphalia was ripe for rebellion and made the ill-advised decision to rise against Napoleon. This revolt was quickly crushed, and Schill paid a terrible price for his folly. He was decapitated, his body was dumped in an unmarked grave, and his head was sent to Jerome Bonaparte, the ruler of Westphalia, as a trophy.

General InformationEdit

Brandenburg Uhlans are slightly more expensive to train and maintain than regular Prussian Lancers, but are slightly better in every stat across the board. They are the best lancers available in the Prussian unit roster, though they are limited to only one regiment. Like most other lancer cavalry, Brandenburg Uhlans are capable of delivering a very deadly charge, but suffer from poor melee and defense statistics. This means that while they are great at hit and run tactics, they stand to suffer heavy casualties if bogged down in a melee.
