** The [[AllInTheManual backstory]] reveals that this is the original reason for the Hiigarans' exile. Back when they were TheEmpire, the Hiigarans used one of the Great Hyperspace Cores to devastate the Taiidani homeworld. After they lost their Core, along with most of their fleet, the Taiidani retaliated and took Hiigara for themselves, since they were now short a homeworld.

* The Sforza dynasty was started by the leader of a band of PrivateMilitaryContractors that used his men to take over an Italian city-state. They decided on Milan; Sforza ended up hiring LeonardoDaVinci when the latter ended up being too prissy for the {{Medici}}s' tastes.

* ''{{Eberron}}'' sees this trope a lot. The people of Cyre in particular, as the Day of Mourning which ended the Last War created [[{{Mordor}} the Mournland]] out of their former home. The main settlement of Cyran survivors has internal tension about ''how'' they should go about it -- some wanted to claim independence where they were, while others wanted to seek something else (mostly out of a desire to not betray the trust of the only nation to go so far as to offer the Cyran survivors a decent area to settle down and govern themselves autonomously in).

* With one member of the ''Film/TheMagnificentSeven'' looking to settle down as his quickness dissipates, perhaps they qualify.

* The Flight of the Wild Geese. After the wars of the 17th century Irish soldiers emigrated in their thousands to work as mercenaries for their fellow Catholics in Spain, France, and Austria, rather than live under the unbearable political and religious oppression at home. As late as 1792 the Kings of France maintained several Irish regiments and during the NapoleonicWars an Irish Legion was part of the French Army, while the Spanish army also contained many Irishmen or Irish-descended Spaniards. Descendants of the Geese included Patrice de Mac-Mahon (Marshal of France and first president of the French Third Republic) and Bernardo O'Higgins (another general and one of the founders of independent Chile).
* The NapoleonicWars saw a number of such units.

* ''[[Literature/TheHistoryOfTheGalaxy Dabog]]'' has the [[TheEmpire Earth Alliance]] soldiers treat their upcoming surprise invasion of the LostColony Dabog in this manner, their opinion of the Dabogan colonists being something along the lines of "Who cares what they want? They owe us!" Each soldier and SpaceNavy officer participating in the attack is promised resettlement to Dabog. The unannounced invasion starts with the nuking of two major Dabogan cities. [[spoiler:When the Dabogans manage to successfully rout the invading forces, the Earth Alliance fleet admiral order the planet thoroughly nuked as a lesson to the other colonies, sparking a decades-long [[TheWarOfEarthlyAggression Galactic War]]]].
