Origin and History

The regiment was raised by the Prince of Mecklenburg-Strelitz in 1702.

During the War of the Spanish Succession, the regimental Chefs were:

  • from 1702: Colonel Adolph Friedrich, Prince von Mecklenburg-Strelitz (died on 12 May 1708)
  • from 1708 to 1717: Colonel Knöbel (retired in 1717)

Service during the War

Even if it was created in 1702, there is no mention of the service of this regiment during the war.


Wissel mentions that, from its creation to 1761, the regiment had a red uniform with yellow as distinctive colour (for lapels, cuffs and lining, and for the waistcoat) and yellow buttons.
