The Irish Brigade soldiers (1688 - 1791)

Forever exiled from Ireland, catholic Irish soldiers, also known as Jacobites, loyal to king James, the last catholic king of England, migrated to France to continue to serve their king. Over the years, Irish regiments would be disbanded and reformed to eventually create the six infantry regiments (Welsh, Bulkeley, Clare, Dillon, Berwick and Lally) and the Fitzjames cavalry regiment that fought during the Battle of Fontenoy in 1745. The "Irish Brigade" were recognised as outstanding soldiers and played a pivotal role at the French victory at Fontenoy.
These figures of the Irish Brigade soldiers are presented at National Museum of Ireland - Decorative Arts & History.

Lasting from 19 July 1870 to 28 January 1871, the conflict was caused by Prussian ambitions to extend German unification and French fears of the shift in the European balance of power that would result if the Prussians succeeded.These tin toy soldiers are presented at the National Museum of Ireland - Decorative Arts & History.
