PART 1


SAXON REGIMENTAL HISTORIES

There are three basic sources for regimental histories - O.Schuster and F.U.Francke’s Geschichte der Sächsischen Armee (Leipzig, 1885), Heinrich A. Verlohren’s Stammregister und Chronik der Kur- und Königlich Sächsischen Armee (Leipzig, 1910) and Georg Tessin`s Die Regimenter der Europäischen Staaten im Ancien Regime des XVI. bis XVIII Jahrhundrets, Teil 1 Die Stammlisten, Bad Honnef a. Rhein 1986. Although all three agree in many areas, they are at variance in many others. This is understandable considering the number of units, particularly prior to 1706, that were authorized, but never raised or completed; or broken-up and incorporated in other units. In addition, a number of orders of battle from the period list the unit under the name of the Lientenant Colonel rather than the Colonel Inhaber. I have used Tessin’s work as the basis and tried to incorporate the other two as appropriate.

Note: The numbers assigned are purely for convenience and in no way represent precedence.
