Flag Nauzicaa
Gwent art Charge of the Nauzicaa

The Nauzicaa (or Nausicaa) brigade, also known as the "Skullheads", was a division of the 4th Cavalry Army, Nilfgaardian mounted troops commanded by Major General Markus Braibant. The brigade itself was commanded by Kees van Lo.

Nauzicaa, together with the 7th Daerlan Brigade, were the last troops sent into battle in the battle of Brenna. Lead by the Field Marshal Menno Coehoorn himself, these forces were supposed to rip through the Northerner armies, end up behind enemy lines and then attack them from the rear. This effort proved ultimately futile as the inexperienced Poor Fucking Infantry, under the voivode Bronibor, was surprisingly able to thwart the Nilfgaardian cavalry's advance and stand their ground despite the heavy casualties suffered. From this point on, Nilfgaard's defeat was inevitable and swift.

The Witcher 3: Wild HuntEdit

The brigade was featured as one of the Gwent cards, albeit with a different spelling, "Nausicaa".
