This list covers Arnoric~reton armies from the end nf the British connection until assinnilation into the Norman military system. The initial
date fnr the changeover to an effectively all-cavalry army is conjectural, but a trember of the final wave of British emigration after the loss
of the lowland west is credited in a saint's life with the popularisation of flat racing. All battles fought later than that mention native Bretons
only as cavaLry. though Breton javelinmen appear later as mercenaries and are allowed here too. By this time too, the Alan foederati settled
in Arnorica had been Christianised and largely assimilated into the general population, where even today Alain is a popular name and there
