What's in a name?
The Landsknechte (also rendered as Landsknechts; singular: Landsknecht, pronounced [ˈlantsknɛçt]) were German-speaking mercenaries used in pike and shot formations during the early modern period. Consisting predominantly of pikemen and supporting foot soldiers, their front line was formed by Doppelsöldner ("double-pay men") renowned for their use of arquebus and Zweihänder. They formed the bulk of the Holy Roman Empire's Imperial Army from the late 1400s to the early 1600s.
