Guardia Civil are the gendarmerie of Spain, a military force charged with police force duties in civilian areas and population. While they maintain both federal military and police force status, they are also assigned with foreign peace keeping missions and are also used as militia men for Spanish colonization. The unit was founded during the reign of Queen Isabel II of Spain in 1844 by aristocrat Francisco Javier Giron.
