1º Regimento de Infantaria Expedicionária


There's is little information about portuguese conflicts during this time period but most portuguese focus was on expanding the territories they held in Africa more specificly Angola and Mozambique.

The infantry portion of the portuguese army was devided in diferent kinds of regiments: Companhias de Mouros (Moors Companies), Infantaria Expedicionária (Expeditionary Infantry), Infantaria do Ultramar (Overseas Infantry) and Tropas Indígenas (Indigenous Troops), this last ones came from Macau (China), India and Africa.

It is also good to motice that Portugal took no part in a european war during this time period as it was still recovering from it's civil war in the 30's

The Regiment

We are the 1º Regimento de Infantaria Expedicionária (1st Regiment of Expeditionary Infantry). We like to think we are friendly but we like to keep it mature. Anyone is free to join with the only requirement being that you behave properly and keep it mature.

If you wish to join add Specialboia on steam

We hope to see you all on the battlefield.

The Légion Portugaise (or Portuguese Legion in english) was formed in 1808 when the french army, lead by Junot, invaded Portugal for the first time. As usual Napoleon ordered the formation of a foreign Legion, in this case the portuguese one.
The legion was originally formed by 5 Infantry regiments, 2 Cavalry regiments and 1 Artillery regimement. In total 9 000 men, by the end of the war more then 30 000 men had served on the legion. In 1811 the Legion was reorganized forming the 13e Demi-Brigade d'elite de la Legion Portugaise and staying with only 3 Infantry Regiments, 1 Cavalry Regiment and 1 depot battalion. By 1813 heavy casualties it was reorganized to only 1 Battalion de guerre and 1 depot battalion. In May,5th of 1814 the Légion Portugaise was finnaly disbanded.

At the service of Napoleon, the Portuguese Legion fought in the campaigns of Germany, Austria and Russia, suffering heavy casualties. It was present in the battles of Wagram, Smolensk, Vitebsk and Borodino (Moscow). Being highly regarded by Napoleon, the troops of the Legion were referred by him as the "Black Infantry"


As a french unit it makes sense that we use the french ranks and they are the following one (starting with the lowest):

*Sous Lieutenant
*Chef de Bataillon
*Major(this one and the following two would be the same but some say that they are not the same so we accept them)
*Lieutenant Colonel
*Colonel en Seconde


Right now we are a starting regiment and we are constantly recruiting both NA and EU people, if you are interested in joining The 1erLP add Specialboia on Steam.
