WORLD'S SMALLEST ARMY
THE LONGEST LIST OF THE LONGEST STUFF AT THE LONGEST DOMAIN NAME AT LONG LAST

What is the world's smallest army?


The world’s smallest army is the Swiss Guard. Recently they celebrated their 500th anniversary as protectors of Vatican City, which is of course the world’s smallest state.

Today, there are 110 members of the Swiss Guard. They all are Catholic and have to be 5 foot, 9 inches tall to apply for the job.

The Swiss Guard was started on January 22, 1506 when 150 Swiss mercenaries marched all the way to Rome to serve under Pope Julius II.
