Mounted crossbowmen were very common. Particularly in your own country, in fact. 'Jyske Lov' decrees for one crossbow per styrisman/mounted man-at-arms per ship in the Danish leidangs-fleet, and the Norwegian 'Hirdskraa' explicitly mentions training and equipping the (mounted) king's guard with bows and crossbows.

Damn... Well that's actually kind of neat I guess.
Eventhough I appreciate some good historical knowledge, I'm always embarrased when someone outside my country teaches me about my own history, hah!
Hats off to you, sir!

I'm also Danish. Probably the only reason I've bothered to read these sources..

I'm bumping this, because it's the only source of this stuff so nicely compiled that I know of. :)
