The French guard (fr. la Garde française) or the royal guard or the guards of the king is the later name of part of the royal military retinue or royal military house in France during the Old Regime. The guard included a large number of divisions, cavalry and infantry; was at the same time the personal protection of the monarch and the elite army in military conflicts.
The term military royal court appeared in 1671; the term royal guard - after the second Restoration, when Louis XVIII reorganized the "King's House" into the "royal guard" (fr. Garde Royale), which lasted from January 1816 to August 1830.
In France, according to Gregory of Tours, the King of Orleans, Gontran (reigned 561-592), in front of whom both his brothers died at the hands of assassins, was constantly guarded by a group of officers. Philip-Augustus (ruled 1180-1223) during the war in Palestine, fearing assassins, had with him a guard of 50 people. Charles VI, fearing the British, kept a detachment of Scots with him.
