    Default Minor States/Nations Regimental Names

    I plan to pull together for the minor states a useful (but not exhaustive) guide/tool for players of “Napoleon: Total War” who like the units they command to have more realistic names.

    To produce the lists I will draw on a wide range of books including - Elting “Swords Around a Throne”; Haythornthwaite “The Napoleonic Source Book”; Otto von Pivka “Armies of the Napoleonic Era”; Osprey Men at Arms; Nafziger/Wesolowski/Devoe “Poles and Saxons of the Napoleonic Wars”; Knotel’s ”Uniforms of the World”; Gill ""With Eagles to Glory"; Partridge & Oliver’s “Napoleonic Army Handbook”; the booklets of Nafziger & Rawkins on various armies; the books of Ilari & Crociani etc on everything to do with Italy; booklets from the Napoleonic Association; magazine articles (Tradition, Age of Napoleon, Little Wars etc) and various websites (but most definitely not Wiki!) including Napoleon Series etc.

    First 20 completed:
    Saxony (post 2);
    Bavaria (post 3);
    Wurttemberg (post 4);
    Hesse-Kassel (post 7)
    Sardinia (post 9)
    Baden (post 11)
    Hesse-Darmstadt (post 12)
    Two Sicilies (post 13)
    Kingdom of Italy (post 14)
    Westphalia (post 15)
    Duchy of Warsaw (post 20)
    Kingdom of Naples (post 25)
    Spain (separate thread at http://www.twcenter.net/forums/showthread.php?t=460616 ) - 1814 entry added
    Sweden(separate thread at http://www.twcenter.net/forums/showthread.php?p=9917327#post9917327)
    Ottoman Empire (separate thread at http://www.twcenter.net/forums/showthread.php?t=469295)
    Brunswick (post 27)
    Hanover (separate thread at http://www.twcenter.net/forums/showthread.php?p=10364723#post10364723)
    Grand Duchy of Berg (post 31)
    Oldenburg (post 32)
    Mecklenburg-Schwerin & Mecklenburg-Strelitz (post 34)

    Work in progress/to do:

    Papal States (request by Keneticpest - 90 percent done)
    Portugal (60% done)
    Denmark
    Batavian Republic/Kingdom of Holland
    Very Minor German States - Nassau, Wurzburg, Frankfurt, Saxon Duchies, Reuss, Waldeck, Anhalt, Lippe, Schwarzburg, Hanseatics,

    Am happy to take requests – despite acquiring a couple of books on the Ottomans I do not have sufficient information to attempt to pull together a really meaningful list but have produced a general guide on troop types...

    Before the formation of Light Infantry units each line infantry regiment designated 2 officers and 2 drummers to lead their regiments “scharfschϋtzen” (sharpshooters). Every company provided 1 corporal & 8 privates; so in total a regiment deployed 94 personnel.

    1806 national militia raised to assist with the garrison duties and general service within the state borders.

They were designated Nationalgarde I Klasse (National Guard First Class). In late April a Landes-Defensionsbataillon was formed.

    Gebirgsschϋtzen of 3 divisions formed – 1st division Trauenstein district (500 men); 2nd division Rosenheim district (1,000 men); & 3rd division Garmisch district (1,000 men).

    Nationalgarde II Klasse (National Guard Second Class) raised.

The counties were: main; Pegnitz; Naab; Rezal; Altmϋhl; Oberdonau; Lech; Regen; Unterdonau; Isar; Salzach; Iller; Inn; Eisach; & Etsch.

    Local militias (Bϋrgergarde) were also raised as Nationalgarde III Klasse (National Guard Third Class)

    1813 Mobile-Legions re-organised and renamed the Nationalfeldbataillon, (Nationalgarde II Klasse) with terms of service allowing them to serve with the regular army. At least 20 battalions, each bearing the name of its recruitment district:
    Isarkreises; Salzakreises; Oberdonaukreises; Regenkreises; Unterdonaukreises; Mainkreises; Illerkreises; Wurzburg; Rezatkreises; Aschaffenburg;

    Cheers .

    Your request is noted. I will produce a list for the Kingdom of Sardinia as I have the information more readily available.

    Before I can produce a satisfactory list for the Papal States (forgot that apart from the Ottomans there was another difficult State!....) I will need to undertake further research.

    Hessen-Kassel Regimental Names 1790-1806 & 1813-15
    Suspecting the loyalty of the Elector Wiliam I, Napoleon in 1806 invaded Hessen-Kassel & expelled him. The territory was incorporated into the Kingdom of Westphalia. The disposed Elector raised a small force – the Kur-Hessen Freikorps- to assist Austria in 1809. He had to wait until November 1813 before he could return to his capital and his lands.

    Kingdom of Sardinia 1800-1814 (prior to restoration)

    Having exempted his troops from their oath of allegiance the King of Sardinia went into exile in Sardinia.

    The only regiments on the island were:
    Sardinia National Regiment of Order (two battalions, each of 7 companies of Fusiliers) and the Dragoons of Sardinia (2 squadrons). There were also some smaller units - the company of artillery, the light centuria (dissolved almost immediately) and a company of foreign Cacciatori, composed of soldiers from various National & Foreign Regiments of Order. As the Cacciatori company’s strength increased it was named in 1801 Battaglione Cacciatori Esteri, and in 1808 it was renamed Cacciatori di Savoia.

    In 1807 twelve regiments of provincial infantry (1 battalion strong, each of 4 companies of Fusiliers) and six of provincial cavalry (each of about 450 men in 6 companies - 3 squadrons?) were formed. The Sardinia National Regiment of Order strength fell to 1,160 men, the cavalry to 390).

    Grand Duchy of Baden
    (In NTW the Grand Duchy forms part of the Province of Baden-Wurttemburg – which only came into existence post World War 2)

    In 1803 Baden line infantry regiments comprised 2 Battalions of 4 companies (4 musketeer) & 1 grenadier each of 106 personnel. The grenadier companies were detached to form Grenadier Bataillon von Stetten.

    October 1806 line infantry regiments comprised 2 Battalions of 4 musketeer companies, each of 116 personnel (10 schϋtzen).
    Garrison (Garnison) regiments comprised 4 companies; each regiment was attached to an infantry regiment to act as its depot & garrison fortresses.

    October 1808 each line infantry regiment absorbed its attached garrison regiment - a regiment now comprised 2 field battalions. Field battalions adopted the French standard 6 company organisation –1 grenadier, 1 voltigeur & 4 musketeer companies; with 140 personnel per company; regimental HQ 31 personnel. In May 1809 Musketeers were renamed Fusiliers.
