1806 Prussian Dragoon
Yes, it's dragoon and not dragon.
About this creation
As the sun rose on the first day of 1806, Prussian cavalry enjoyed an excellent reputation, built on their successes in the previous century.



However Prussia had had many years of peace prior to that year, so there had been no real test of that reputation.



When war did erupt (the campaign of Jena) the cavalry were to be a disappointment to friend and foe alike, and the disasters of that year presaged great changes in the army as a whole.



For more, see Wikipedia. My idea came from here

Hey sorry i was so harsh i just don't like when people claim that something is true even if that isn't but voc never stands for "west india company" But really many voc-ships did have different flags some have voc symbol in the middle- most didn't you are right about that- there is old picture made by chinese or japanese- i don't know exactly- but there is ship flying in the color of Holland (modern ones) with ordinary Dutch flag over the stern (Where i have vo-flag) and voc flag in the mast- so maybe my ship wasn't 100% accurate but there were not ship named after Rotterdam (or it is not remembered in history) so it could have different flags however it wasn't lego after all XD- hey i can invite you to my history group since you seem to know lot about it...

Quoting swash buckler It is good but Prussian dragoons were not lego minifigs! Not seriously... it's nice but you criticized my voc-ship so incorrectly... check out my reply and apologize thank you...since i'm sure that you were wrong about the flags-I don't want to be rude but that's true all sources and dutch speakers know that i was right and flag was correct- you got some point though but so surprising as it is my flag was almost perfectly correct- so please reply...
Then they don't know all about history. Actually, the Indian East Company used both flags but when you use the red, blue and white, you must put the east dutch indian company symbol, what I haven't seen. Now you understand my correction? Both can be used but as you didn't put the symbol in the middle it's historicly 50% incorrect (at least I saw them all without the symbol).
