In 1859 the “Pavia” became a regiment of Hussars, with the denomination Husares de Pavia, 7th Cavalry, being named 1st Hussars in 1865.
The Hussars of Pavia participated in the actions and battles of the Third Carlist War, distinguished in the battle of Oroquieta, the rupture of the site of Bilbao, the battle of Monte Muru, the capture of Villarreal de Álava and the battle of Treviño.
