    Default Spanish regimental names 1805-14

    Spanish Army 1805-14


    Originally planned to include Spain in my Minor Nations/States thread, but on reflection have concluded that Spain deserves its own thread in recognition of the sheer number of units it raised to fight in the Peninsular War.

    To produce the following lists covering 1805 to 1814 I have drawn on Otto von Pivka "Armies of the Napoleonic Wars", Philip Haythornthwaite "The Napoleonic Source Book", the 4 Ospreys on the Spanish Army of the Napoleonic Wars, José Maria Bueno "El Ejército y la Armada en 1808" & "Uniformes Españoles de la Guerra de Independencia", Charles Esdaille "The Spanish Army in the Peninsular" & "The Duke of Wellington & the Command of the Spanish Army 1812-14", George Nafziger "Armies of Spain & Portugal", Sir Charles Oman “History of the Peninsular War”, Richard Partridge & Michael Oliver "Napoleonic Army Handbook - The British Army & Her Allies", Knotel "Uniforms of the World", Jose Gomez de Arteche y Moro “Guerra de la Independencia, Historia Militar de España de 1808 á 1814”, various magazines, articles & websites.

    Conflicting information, continual destruction & reformation of units means that it is highly unlikely that there can ever be a definitive list of units. The following aims to provide a reasonable guide to the naming of Spanish units.

    Guardias de Corps(Guard du Corps) 4 companies (Española; Americana; Italiana & Flamenca)

    Default Re: Spanish regimental names 1805-14

    Changes to organisation of infantry regiments/battalions:

    1810 major reorganisation which theoretically produced 8 grenadier battalions (formed into 4 divisions), 121 line regiments, 32 light regiments & 2 corps of Swiss infantry.
    Grenadier battalions comprised 5 grenadier companies & 1 cazador company – each company had 134 men. Battalion HQ 9 men.
    Line battalions comprised 6 companies: 1 Grenadier, 1 Cazador & 4 Fusilier. Grenadier company 115 men, Cazador company106 men, Fusilier companies had 165 men, regimental staff 20 men; 1st battalion HQ 9 men, 2nd & 3rd battalion HQs each 6 men.
    Light infantry battalion 6 companies each of 210 men, battalion HQ 9 men.

    1812 July – decree passed reducing regiments to single battalion but unlikely to have been implemented while fighting the French.
