It’s funny to think of Swiss fellas as being the go to guard – the mercenaries of their age (and still are for the Pope.) The Switzerland I think of is famous for neutrality – but the relationship between those things is interesting. You CAN be hired muscle if you famously don’t pick sides. Maybe the neutrality we think of now originated in that mercenary impulse. You could hire them because they were hire-able – and then that quality made them good candidates for neutrality.
