Republican Guard (Laeral)
The Republican Guard (Fr: Garde Républicaine, Mn: Gònghédǎng wèiduì) is an elite Laeralian military unit originally in existence from 1923 to 1968, before being reestablished in 1990. Established in the first year of the Republic of Laeral by President René Gramont as a military unit separate from the Laeralian Army and of secure loyalty to the Social Democratic regime. Composed of elite troops receiving superior training and equipment than standard Laeralian army units, the Republican Guard reported directly to the President of the Republic. The Republican Guard served with distinction in numerous conflicts during its existence, including the Brissac War, the Accession of Lienne, the Bloody Summer, and the Great War. After the end of the Great War, the Republican Guard was disbanded and reincorporated into the Laeralian National Security Force in 1968, and was reinstated in a limited role as the president's personal bodyguard by President Michel Baudry in 1990. Elements of the role and traditions of the original Republican Guard remain in the elite Special Forces units of the LNSF.
