What is the Swiss Guard?
The Swiss Guard is the unit that famously protects the Pope. It’s a legacy of the time where Switzerland wasn’t as prosperous as it is now, and young men would go abroad to work as mercenaries.
Their most famous engagement came in 1527; 190 guards died protecting Clement VII, and allowing the pope to flee from the Vatican through a stone passageway.
