Hungary's Black Army traditionally encompasses the years from 1458 to 1494.[1] The mercenary soldiers of other countries in the era were conscripted from the general population at times of crisis, and soldiers worked as bakers, farmers, brick-makers, etc. for most of the year. In contrast, the men of the Black Army fought as well-paid, full-time mercenaries and were purely devoted to the arts of warfare. It was a standing mercenary army that conquered large parts of Austria (including the capital Vienna in 1485) and more than half of the Crown of Bohemia (Moravia, Silesia and both Lusatias), the other important victory of the army was won against the Ottomans at the Battle of Breadfield in 1479.

To forego the pleasures of sense, and undergo the hardships that attend a holly life,
Is such a kind of mercenaries, as none but a resigned, believing soul is likely to be guilty of;
If fear itself, and even the fear of bell, may be one justifiable motive of men's actions.

-Robert Boyle. (1627-1691)
