Armies

  • Römische Kayserlich Königliche Armee (German) = "Austria"
  • Königlich Preußische Armee (German) = "Prussia"
  • Chur-Pfälzische Armee (German) = "Palatinate"
  • British Army = "Britain"

Notes

1. The British army was never called the "Royal Army". This is due to the circumstances under which the army was raised in 1660, initially from regiments of the New Model Army, which had defeated Charles I in the English Civil War. These were under the command of George Monck, who was instrumental in the restoration of monarchy in 1660. Monck's regiment would later become the Coldstream Guards
