Once upon a time it was the Swiss considered the most resistant, the most reliable bodyguards. In 1527, when the army invaded Rome Carlos V, the whole Vatican Swiss guards, to the last soldier, died shielding an exodus of Pope Clement VII. Valuing them for their loyalty, many rulers tried to gain his custody because of the Swiss. So the word "Swiss" or "Switzerland" has become synonymous with "bodyguard" or "guard" until eventually not acquired the sense that we know him today. After many years of brutal school of conspiracy and attempted forced the guard to part with uniforms and braid. Dressed in ordinary suits and hats commonplace today they are trying, on the contrary, be as inconspicuous as possible.
