One of the French Revolutionary armies, the Army of the Pyrenees (Armée des Pyrénées) was created by a decree of the National Convention dated 1 October 1792 and formed out of the right wing of the Armée du Midi. At the outbreak of the War of the Pyrenees with the Kingdom of Spain, a decree of 30 April 1793 separated the Armée des Pyrénées into the Army of the eastern Pyrenees (Armée des Pyrénées orientales) and the Army of the western Pyrenees (Armée des Pyrénées occidentales).[1]
