7th Hussar Regiment (France) Wikipedia
First established as the 8th Hussar Regiment on 23 November 1792, it entered the French Revolutionary Army as the hussards de Lamothe. The unit was promoted to 7th Hussar Regiment on 4 June 1793 following the defection of the 4th Hussar Regiment to the counter revolutionary Armée des Émigrés.
In 1814 it was renamed the régiment de hussards d'Orléans and on the Bourbon Restoration it took the name Colonel-général des hussards, briefly reverting to 7th Hussar Regiment during the Hundred Days before being disbanded in November 1815. The 7th Hussars had several notable commanders including Pierre David de Colbert-Chabanais and Jean Baptiste Antoine Marcellin de Marbot (during the Hundred Days). Hercule Corbineau (1780–1823), and future cavalry generals Louis Bro (1781–1844) and Antoine Fortuné Brack (1807–1813) also served with the regiment.
In 1840 the cavalry unit was re-formed as the 7th Hussar Regiment out of elements of the 4th, 5th, 6th and 12th Mounted Chasseur Regiments and of the 5th Hussar Regiment.
It was finally disbanded in 1928.
It was briefly re-formed as the 7th Hussar Regiment for the Algerian War between 1956 and 1959.1792 : Colonel Lamothe
