      What is a carroccio?



Mainly used in Italian armies in Feudal times. The carroccio was a painted, ox-drawn wagon consisting of a rectangular wooden platform supporting an altar and a mast, from which a standard flew. Some carroccios held armed troops, others were protected guards of mounted knights. Since its loss, and especially its standard, was considered a grevious dishonour and humiliation it was always accompanied to battle by an elite guard unit, usually infantry.
