Mercenary Alani Horsemen

Alani horsemen carry spear and shield into battle.

The Alans, or Alani, were a Sarmatian people, probably of Iranian or Turkish origin. Like other nomads, livestock formed the basis of their sustenance, so a land's suitability for grazing was a major factor when deciding where to settle. Famed for their skill as horse breeders, even the Romans wrote favourably of the Alans' talents. This fine breeding stock gave their warriors an edge in mounted combat; horse and rider had to perform a variety of manoeuvres very quickly, so man and beast constantly trained together to ensure this. The Alani's use of armoured cavalry and horse archers, along with the tactics they employed, made them a formidable foe. By the end of the 4th century AD, when the Huns stormed down from the steppes, the Alans were living beyond the River Don, northeast of the Black Sea. The Huns' arrival drove them from the region in several groups, some of whom joined the emergent Vandals as they migrated into Roman-held Gaul, becoming part of their confederation from that point onwards.
