French Foreign Legion: 186th Anniversary

The current French Foreign Legion has inherited the lineage of the Foreign Legion established by a royal decree of King Louis-Philippe I on March 10, 1831. Because of that, the 10th March marks the anniversary of the current Foreign Legion. Nevertheless, the origins and the history of the current Legion are more complex.
