Kheshig were the imperial guard for Mongol royalty in the Mongol Empire, particularly for rulers like Genghis Khan and his wife BÃ¶rte.
Their primary purpose was to act as bodyguards for the emperors and other important nobles.
They were divided into two groups; the day guard (Kheshig) and the night guard (Khevtuul).
First used by the legendary ruler of the Mongols, Genghis Khan is the man responsible for the creation of the Kheshig back in the start of the 13th century around 1203. Of course Genghisâ€™s father was actually poisoned, and any position of power especially the Khan would draw a vast amount of unwanted attention and a potential threat to life.
The Kheshig started out literally as a personal guard for Genghis, his protection from a potential assassination attempt. This had the group at around 150 men strong, later the Kheshig would grow much larger to the size of a tumen, 1000 men. A later Khan, Kublai Khan actually had a fully armed Kheshig and personal guard of over 12,000 men.

The cowboy, the quintessential symbol of the American frontier.
Many of the cowboys were veterans of the Civil War; a diverse group, they included Blacks, Hispanics, Native Americans, and immigrants from many lands. The earliest cowboys in Texas learned their trade, adapted their clothing, and took their jargon from the Mexican vaqueros or “buckaroos”, the heirs of Spanish cattlemen from middle-south of Spain. Chaps, the heavy protective leather trousers worn by cowboys, got their name from the Spanish “chaparreras”, and the lariat, or rope, was derived from “la reata”. All the distinct clothing of the cowboyâ€”boots, saddles, hats, pants, chaps, slickers, bandannas, gloves, and collar-less shirtsâ€”were practical and adaptable, designed for protection and comfort. The cowboy hat quickly developed the capability, even in the early years, to identify its wearer as someone associated with the West.
Before the New Kingdom the Egyptian armies were composed of conscripted peasants and artisans, who would then mass under the banner of the pharaoh. During the Old and Middle Kingdom Egyptian armies were very basic.
The Egyptian soldiers carried a simple armament consisting of a spear with a copper spearhead and a large wooden shield covered by leather hides. A stone mace was also carried in the Archaic period, though later this weapon was probably only in ceremonial use, and was replaced with the bronze battle axe.
The spearmen were supported by archers carrying a simple curved bow and arrows with arrowheads made of flint or copper. No armor was used during the 3rd and early 2nd Millennium BC. Foreigners were also incorporated into the army, Nubians entered Egyptian armies as mercenaries and formed the best archery units.
Maya states did not maintain standing armies; warriors were mustered by local officials who reported back to appointed warleaders. There were also units of full-time mercenaries who followed permanent leaders.
Most warriors were not full-time, however, and were primarily farmers; the needs of their crops usually came before warfare. Maya warfare was not so much aimed at destruction of the enemy as the seizure of captives and plunder.
During the Contact period, it is known that certain military positions were held by members of the aristocracy, and were passed on by patrilineal succession. It is likely that the specialised knowledge inherent in the particular military role was taught to the successor, including strategy, ritual, and war dances. Maya armies of the Contact period were highly disciplined, and warriors participated in regular training exercises and drills; every able-bodied adult male was available for military service.
A ninjaÂ was a covert agent or mercenary in feudal Japan.
The functions of the ninja included espionage, sabotage, infiltration, assassination and guerrilla warfare.
Their covert methods of waging irregular warfare were deemed “dishonorable” and “beneath” the samurai-caste, who observed strict rules about honor and combat. The shinobi proper, a specially trained group of spies and mercenaries, appeared in the Sengoku or “warring states” period, in the 15th century, but antecedents may have existed in the 14th century, and possibly in the 12th century (Heian or early Kamakura era).
