The Billingsgate was mostly a German mercenary who could be hired in the 15th and 16th century. They were known as good and sometimes gruesome soldiers. When they were not paid well enough they easily started to loot.

Georg von Frundsberg (1473-1528) and Gotz von Berlichingen (1481-1562) were commanding officers of the Habsburger Emperor. They commanded soldiers on almost all the battlefields in Europe. Von Berlichingen had the nickname Baron of thieves. This name tells a lot about him and his soldiers.
