Sipahi Lancers These men are recruited in the same manner as the janissaries. Either as enslaved Christian prisoners of war or later by the human tax, known as the Devshirme. The Devshirme recruited among Christian boys in rural areas, taking one boy from every family to be brought into the Sultan's standing army, the kapikulu. But, whereas the famous janissaries are chosen from amongst the worse recruits, the best will go to serve in the kapikulu cavalry. They were given a better education than the janissaries in addition to the superb military training they also received. Many of the recruits went on to become administrators and viziers. Thus for some poverty-stricken families the notion of a boy being taking in by the devshirme was not as grim as may be imagined. There were six cavalry regiments, the largest of which were the sipahis, a name which later came to describe nearly all Ottoman cavalry. They are superbly equipped and possess an amazing esprit de corps, they are the Sultan's most trusted warriors and will fight any enemy.
