1er Régiment de Grenadiers-à-Pied de la Garde Impériale "The Old Guard"

(1/13) > >>

The 1er is a unit made up of veteran players from NW. We seek to bring a (nearly) historically accurate feel to the regiment and its players. We will use proper commands at all times. All men enlisted with this regiment will be sorted into companies etc. We will provide all members new and old with constant training and drilling in efficient tactics. As Grenadiers we will focus on being shock infantry, and an elite unit on every battlefield. Discipline will be a major part of this unit as it is a core value in maintaining a successful environment for a military based setting. Officers will always set examples for their men and do their best in all situations to come out victorious. We will also have many recruiting events as we hope to field 50 men per battle eventually.

The 1st Foot Grenadier Regiment of the Imperial Guard was an elite regiment of the Grand Army of the Napoleonic Wars. It is part of the Imperial Guard and it is one of only four true Old Guard units (along with the 1st Chasseurs à Pied, Chasseurs à Cheval and Grenadiers à Cheval). It is the oldest infantry regiment of the Grande Armée. The foot grenadiers of the Imperial Guard have their origins in the grenadiers of the Convention and the Guard of the Directory, which took part in the coup d'etat of Brumaire and were united in the Consular Guard on November 28, 1799. The strength of the grenadiers of the guard was then one regiment, divided into two battalions of six companies, each company numbering eighty grenadiers led by fourteen non-commissioned officers , two officers and two drummers; to the whole is added the staff of the regiment and a band of musicians. The grenadiers of the Consular Guard took part in the Italian campaign, where they served as a reserve for Bonaparte. At Marengo , their intervention stabilized the French line just as it was beginning to sag and enabled it to hold out until Desaix arrived.

September 8, 1801, the size of the regiment, then commanded by Colonel Hulin, was increased by increasing the number of companies per battalion from six to eight, each of which was also provided with two sappers. January 21, 1804, it is once again increased by the addition of a battalion of velites. After Bonaparte's accession to the imperial throne May 18, 1804, the consular guard changes its name and becomes the imperial guard.

Apart from the name, few things change for the grenadiers, except that the number of musicians increases to forty-six and the symbols change, the regiment notably receiving its eagle December 2, 1804. After Russia and Austria entered the war, the grenadiers of the Imperial Guard set off August 26, 1804 for Strasbourg where they joined the rest of the Grande Armée. Although they follow it throughout the German campaign, they remain in reserve at each battle and do not take part in any combat.

The grenadiers of the Old Guard in combat, recognizable thanks to the bear cap, characteristic of the elite regiments of the Guard (by Bellangé, around 1900).
April 2, 1806 the 2nd regiment of foot grenadiers of the Imperial Guard is created, the one already existing becoming in fact the 1st regiment. In addition, the regiment was provided with another battalion of velites, increasing its strength to four battalions. In the aftermath, the regiment leaves following the Emperor in the War of the Fourth Coalition , although, once again, it does not take part in the fighting at first, being held in reserve. The first, and last, engagement took place at the Battle of Eylau, during which the Russian artillery inflicted heavy losses on the regiment.Officiers
