The Spanish Netherlands Infantry Regiments

Overview of the Spanish Netherlands Infantry regiments

Starting point for a description of the Spanish Netherlands infantry regiments could be a list published in 1701100. There are also good list of the Spanish Netherlands infantry regiments from April 1702100a and 14 March 1703100b. We start with a comparison between the 1703 list of the picture above and the 1701 list (in orignal spelling and sorted to fit the 1703 list). The descriptions follow the 1703 list.

All Spanish Netherlands Infantry regiments

Amezaga / Los Rios / Sierra 1701-1715 Galicia

In early October 1701 the Amenzaga tercio left Oostende for Brussel. On sunday 9th it was revued there by Prince Tserclaes. On 22 October 1701 the Amenzaga Tercio was to leave Brussel for Upper Gelre, but was later destined to Gent, where it had arrived on 2 November 1701. The Amezaga regiment was in Gent in April 1702101 its colonel was Juan Antonio Hurtado de Amezaga. During the August 1702 attacks in States Flanders the Amenzaga suffered heavy losses. On 17 June 1703 the Amezaga was destined for Bedmar's army101b. On 30 June 1703 the Amezaga regiment fought in the battle of Ekeren101c. On 4 August 1703 it received orders to leave its camp at Duren and to join the main army101d. On 3 november 1703 the Amenzaga was stated to have arrived in Gent101de.

From June 1706 there is a note that on 2 June 1706 the Los Rios, previously Amenzaga, that defended the citadel of Gent surrendered to the alliance and was made prisoners of war OHC 5 June 1706. I did find that on 1 February 1707 a 'Spanish' Los Rios regiment passed to French pay and in 1710 it took the name 'Las Sierras' and in 1711 the name Leon101e. In another source we find that the regiment 'Galicia' was conducted to Spain under the command of 'Sierra' in 1715 and that he was its twenty-sixth colonel101f. It continues with stating that he was succeeded by Don Juan de Leon and Don Pedro de Castro and that in 1715 it got the name Galicia. It's thus established that the Los Rios regiment later became the Galicia regiment, and we only have to know which of the Spanish regiments later became the Galicia. According to Juan L. Sanchez the Galicia regiment was commanded by Amezaga in 1702, see Galicia regiment 1630-1702

The Los Rios regiment then appears in a 12 May 1705 order of battle101g. In the Battle for the Brabant lines the Los Rios was part of the Zuñiga brigade that defended the part that the alliance attacked101h. In this battle these officers of the Los Rios were taken prisoner: Captain Aranda; Lieutenant d'Aquilera and ensign Mena101i. In 1706 the Rios regiment surrendered and was taken prisoner of war when it garrisoned the citadel of Gent together with the Zuniga101j. It was then stated to count 400 men101k. In a letter to the States General the Duke of Marlborough stated: 'The Spanish battalion consisting of 400 men, with the colonel, the Marquis de Los Rios, and all the officers being made prisoners of war, but all the soldiers, except 50, declar'd for King Charles..101l

The regiment was later merged with Bournonville and continued as 'Los Rios'

Guzman / Ibañez 1702- July 1706 Zamora

As can be deduced from the above table the Ibañez regiment was commanded by Don Carlos de Guzman before Ibañez became commander. In august 1701 it was mentioned as the spanish regiment of the deceased Don Augustin de Guzman (OHC 25 August 1701). In April 1702 the Ibañez regiment was in garrison in Ostende102. It was also known as Puente-Ibañez. In May 1703 the Ibañez regiment was in garrison in Gent103. On 17 June 1703 the Ibañez was in Gent103b. In February 1704 the Ibañez was ordered to remain in garrison in Namur104. After 15 May 1704 it was in Bedmar's army of Brabant. In the June 1706 siege of Oostende the Ibañez regiment was part of the garrison. After the surrender of Ostende the Ibañez marched out on 8 July. More than half of its troops than refused to be conducted to Mons and deserted to the allies104b.

Zuñiga 1692-1705 Soria

In 1692 there was a Spanish Zuniga regiment in the defense of Namur105. In mid November 1701 the Zuniga arrived from Gent in Brussel. In April 1702 the Zuñiga regiment was in Antwerp105a. On 17 June 1703 the Zuñiga regiment was destined for Bedmar's army105b. On 30 June 1703 the Zuñiga regiment fought in the battle of Ekeren105c. On 29 February 1704 is was ordered to advance quarters in Tirlemont106. On 12 May 1705 the Zuñiga was in the main force under Villeroy107. On 18 July 1705 the Zuñiga regiment was part of the Zuñiga brigade which defended the part of the lines that was attacked during the Battle for the Brabant lines.

According to Clonard's work; Zuñiga was succeeded by Pedro de Sotomayor, marqués de Melin; Manuel de Solis y Gante and Francisco Despuig and ultimately became the Soria regiment. We'll have to look for confirmation...

Del Valle 1702-1704 Jaen

In April 1702 the Del Valle regiment was in Antwerp108. In September 1702 it was ordered to join Boufflers'army109. On 17 June 1703 the Del Valle regiment was in Antwerpen108b. On 30 June 1703 the Del Valle regiment fought in the battle of Ekeren109b. On 29 February 1704 it was ordered to remain in garrison in Antwerp110. In May 1704 the Del Valle was in Bedmar's army of Brabant.

According to Clonard (Vol. 9) the Del Valle was in the battle of Rammillies, and was one of the regiments that subsequently defended Dendermonde. Luis del Valle was succeeded by Don Alvaro Pantoja and Don Antonio de Araujo and it was later merged with the Jaen regiment that had been founded in Spain. In the battle of Wijnendaele its colonel Pantoja was wounded.

Idiaquez / Ligne, Spanish 1702-1710 Portugal

In 1699 Don Juan de Idiaquez succeeded Don Luis de Borja as colonel of this regiment. In April 1702 the Idiaquez regiment was in camp between Antwerp and Lier111. According to Clonard the Idiaquez was one of the regiments defending Kayserswerth. In September 1702 it was with the main force under Boufflers112. On 4 May 1703 the Idiaquez regiment was in garrison in Ostende113. On 17 June 1703 it was still in Oostende113b.

In July 1703 a 'Spanish' regiment was given to Antoine-Joseph-Guislain Prince de Ligne (1682-1710, prince since February 1702), d'Amblise et du Saint-Empire, marquis de Roubais et Grand d'Espagne, premier Ber de Flandres. He had been ADC to Felipe V in Italy in 1702113c. We know that this was the Idiaquez regiment because there is mention of the regiment of Don Juan Idiaquez being given to the Prince de Ligne113d. It was stated that in the Battle for the Brabant lines the Lignes was part of the Zuñiga brigade113e that defended the part that the alliance attacked113f. In the list of prisoners that the allies reported later there is no mention of a 'prince de ligne' regiment, but Gondrin is also not mentioned. At some time Antoine-Joseph Prince de Ligne was succeeded in the command of this regiment by his younger brother Claude Prince de Ligne (b. 1685), which ensures that it was a De Ligne regiment till at least 1710.

According to Clonard the Ligne was one of the regiments that rendered Antwerpen to the alliance in 1706. In 1708 it was in the battle of Oudenenaarde and Wijnendaele. In February 1710 it marched to Spain under Claude de Ligne.

Mancheño / Villesca Spanish 1702-1712 Cuenca

The Mancheño regiment was a realy Spanish regiment, in April? 1701 its command had been given to Don Francisco Perez Mancheño114. In April 1702 the Mancheño regiment was in Namur114a. On 17 June 1703 the Mancheño regiment was in Namur114b. In June 1706 the Manchenio was part of Verboom's expedition to reinforce the garrison of Dendermonde. It left Mons with 400 men, but at first only 110 arrived in Dendermonde, followed by some stragglers115. On 1 February 1707 the 'Machieno' passed from the Spanish Army to the French Army. In 1711 Villesca became colonel. In 1712 it was passed into French pay115b.

According to Clonard this later became the Cuenca regiment.

Don Ph. Grimaldi / Marcello 1702-1706

Because there were a lot of Grimaldi's serving in the Spanish Netherlands it is a bit difficult to keep their regiments apart. In April 1707 there were a Lieutenant General Don Marcello Grimaldi, a Maréchal de Camp named Antonio Grimaldi and a Brigadier Philippe Grimaldi116. It then becomes a bit problematic because in order to be clear one of these regiments was named Grimaldi le Jeune. The question then is which regiment was this? In 1702 we have a Marcello-Grimaldi regiment and a Grimaldi-Le Jeune regiment. Whereas in 1703 we have an Antonio and a Philippe regiment. Following the descriptions of these regiments it however becomes clear that the Marcello regiment equals the Philipe Grimaldi and the Antonio equals the Grimaldi le Jeune. This because the name Antonio comes up in September 1702 and the Marcello is still around in December.

In April 1702 the Marcello Grimaldi was in camp at Liège117. In Puységur's plan of June 1702 the Marcello-Grimaldo was to be part of a camp near Maastricht118. On 30 June 1702 the Marcello Grimaldi was ordered to march to the Saar under De Chamarande119. I do not know if it eventually reached the Saar, but in December 1702 is was in garrison in Luxembourg120. In August 1703 the regiment now simply styled 'Grimaldi' was still in Alsace121. In the beginning of 1704 it was still there in Saverne122 and on 20 July 1704 it was in Vileroy's army on the Upper Rhine123. In 1705 The Philippe Grimaldi was mentioned in camp at Boisschot with 1 battalion124. On 1 November 1705 it had a strength of only 300 men125. In July 1706 it was in Nieuwpoort126.

Paulo Magno (Italian) 1698-1706

In June 1698 Max Emanuel gave the Italian regiment of Don Carlo Campi to Don Paulo Magno, who was major of the regiment127. In April 1702 the Paulo Magno regiment was in Limbourg127a. On 17 June 1703 it was in Limbourg127b. The siege of Limbourg started on 14 September 1703 and so we can assume that the Paulo Magno regiment was among the troops taken prisoner of war when Limbourg fell on 27 September. In July 1706 the Paulo Magno was in Nieuwpoort with 1 battalion128

Don Ant. Grimaldi / Le Jeune 1702-1705 / Caraccioli / Parma

The regiment later known as 'Parma' was formed in Naples in 1680 and passed to the Spanish Netherlands under the command of Don Carlos Andrea Caraciolo Marquis de Torrecuso. He was succeeded by Don Dominique Aquaviva d'Aragon and Don Antonio Grimaldi, under whose command it became a regiment in 1702129.

In April 1702 the Grimaldi le Jeune regiment was in the Land of Waes129b. In the May 1702 events the Grimaldi le Jeune was mentioned as having to stay back in the Land of Waes, even though it was intended to be part of Bedmar's field army130. In June 1702 Grimaldi le Jeune was still there and Puységur wanted to leave it there in his 'Projet de Disposition Générale'131. On 1 July 1702 the Grimaldi le Jeune had however disappeared from the list of troops in the Land of Waes132.

On 17 September 1702 we then have the Antonio Grimaldi regiment with a detachment under Tallard, which was to march from a position near Liege towards Bonn133. On 17 June 1703 the Ant. Grimaldi regiment was in Luxembourg133b. On 1 November 1705 the Antonie Grimaldi had a strength of 350 men134. On 27 November 1706 the OHC stated that the Caraccioli had been disbanded, and Brigadier Caraccioli had been made colonel of the Grimaldi the younger. In 1711 Nicol-Joseph de Baert de Berentrode was major of the Litiero regiment of Italian infantry. In 1711 he was made a baron by Felipe V and the grant of this title stated that he had raised a company in the regiment of Don Antonio Grimaldi and served with it till 1709134b.

Westerloo / Holstein (pre-1701 Walloon) 1702-May 1705

In April 1702 the Westerloo regiment had its first battalion in the citadel of Liège135. The second battalion was in Termonde136. According to Puységur this second battalion had begun to form in early february 1702137. In October 1702 the first battalion of the Westerloo became prisoners of war during the assault on the citadel of Liège137b. On 17 June 1703 the two battalions of the Westerloo regiment were destined for Bedmar's army137c, but this probably only regarded the second battalion.

On 30 June 1703 the Westerloo regiment fought in the battle of Ekeren, where its second battalion was in Westerloo's brigade together with the Brias regiment and the second battalion of Vexin138. During this battle his steph-brother the Duke of Holstein-Ploen junior was present and lieutenant-colonel of the battalion138b, Sieur de Beauregard, who had been an officer in the first battalion was captain of the grenadiers of the same138c. In his memoirs Westerloo himself describes how his inexperienced second battalion received a discharge at close range. The major lost control of his horse and rode into the right of the soldiers. This threw them into confusion. The whole battalion fired without any order, most of them into the air. Most of the soldiers then threw down their arms and fled to the rear138d. Westerloo overtook about 300 of his soldiers and regrouped them to attack again. The regiment did take a village but was later chased out of it by the Dutch.

On 4 August 1703 the Westerloo received orders to leave its camp at Duren and to join the main army138e. At the end of the campaign the Marquis de Westerloo was offered the supreme command of the Spanish troops on the Upper Rhine. I do not know whether this meant that Westerloo gave up his command, but it at least seems that the administration then started to designate the regiment as 'Holstein' after its lieutenant-colonel. In spring 1704 2 battalions of the 'Holstein' were ordered from Louvain and Vilvoorde towards Aarschot138f. Later they were designated as to remain in garrsion in or near Aarschot138g. It then received orders to let its first battalion march on 30 March under Grimaldi towards Tirlemont and Jauche138h.

There is then an order of Battle for the army of the Marquis de Bedmar, which again figures two battalions of the 'Westerloo'. Because Bedmar only came into command after Villeroy left this Order of Battle can be dated to 15 May 1704 or later138i. On 20 May 1705 there is a regiment 'Prince de Holstein' in camp between Brugge and Gent138j. Supposing this is a transcription error of prince in stead of 'premier' it's the last mention I have of the Westerloo/Holstein regiment. On 15 May 1706 the Holstein regiment is in the order of battle of the main force in Flanders138k.

Grouff ex Lannoy (pre-1701 Walloon) / Wemmel 1702-1706 Flandre

The Grouff regiment had been formed in 1596 by Charles de Longueval Comte de Buquoi. He was succeeded by Philippe de Torres in 1603; Claude de Lannoy in 1606; the Duke of Aerschot in 1616; Jaques de Henin in 1638; the Count of Megen in 1641; Jean Baptiste Galarde in 1659; Eugène de Bergues in 1666, Ferdinand Joseph de Croy duke of Havré in 1670; the Baron of St Jean in 1676; Viscount Dandrini Count of Livachies in 1684; Jaques Ferdinand Lindeman de Nivelstein governor of Namur in 1699. In that same year 1699 Lindeman was succeeded by the Count de Lannoy139

In late November the Lannoy regiment left Aeth for Leuven. In April 1702 the first battalion was in Hasselt139b. Its second battalion was in Lier140. In October 1702 one of its battalions was in the Chartreuse of Liège141. After the capitulation the garrison marched out on 31 October and a lot of soldiers of the Grouff regiment deserted141b. The regiment was ordered to Luxembourg on 1 feb 1703142. In early June it was designated to stay in garrison with the first battalion in Phalzbourg and the second in Fort Louis143. In February 1704 it was ordered to remain in garrison in Lier144. On 20 May 1705 the Grouff was in the camp that defended the land of Waes145. In October 1705 it was involved in the attack on Diest145b. In July 1706 the Grouff regiment was in Bergues with 620 men146.

Later in 1706 the Marquis de Wemmel became colonel of the regiment146b. In 1707 it was in the administration of the Bourbon army under this name146c. It's not mentioned in Susane's list of regiments which transferred to French pay in February 1707. In 1710 the Marquis de Wemmel brought this regiment to Spain. In 1711 it got the title 'regiment of Ghent'. In 1716 the Marquis de Bay became its colonel and in 1718 it took the name 'Regmiento de Flandes'.

*Grobendonck / Laerne (pre-1701 Walloon) 1692-1708

In the 1692 defense of Namur there was a Grobendonck regiment147. During the war of the Spanish Succession the Grobendonck was a 2 battalion regiment. On 12 Octobere 1701 it arrived in Brussel from Charleroy. On 22 October it left Brussel for Upper Gelre. In April 1702 the first battalion was in Léau147b and its second battalion was in Lier148. On 17 June 1703 the two batalions of the Grobendonck were destined for the main army148b. On 29 February 1704 it was ordered to advance quarters in Tirlemont with 2 battalions149. In April-May 1704 Grobendonck became maitre de camp, making that he quit his regiment, but he took it up again right after (OHC 8 May 1704). On 8 July 1704 it was in Villeroy's army on the Upper Rhine150.

Somewhere in July 1704 the Grobendonck regiment became the Laerne. Though we do not have a specific mention of this it can be deduced from comparing the orders of battle of Villeroy's army on the Upper Rhine on 8 July 1704 (above) and 20 July 1704150b. In the former the Grobendonck appears with two battalions, in the latter there is the Laerne with two battalions. The rest of them is almost the same and the match is supported by the fact that the other Spanish regiments with two battalions are not eligible to be the predecessor of the Laerne. On 1 July 1705 the Laerne was in A. Grimaldi's brigade in the main force in Flanders150c. 1705 2 battalions150d; 1707 1 battalion150e; 1708

*Nassau (pre-1701 Walloon) 1702-1708

The Nassau was a 2 battalion regiment, its commander prince François of Nassau-Siegen. In April 1702 its first battalion was in camp near Liège151. The second battalion was in Charleroy152. On 17 June 1703 the first batallion of the Nassau regiment was in Luxembourg and the second battalion was in Charleroy152b. In June 1705 the Nassau was marching to Namur152c. In October 1705 the Nassau was involved in the attack on Diest153. 1706154; 1707; 1708155

*Deynse (pre-1701 Walloon) 1690-1704

The Deynse was a 2 battalion regiment and has been mentioned to have been a tercio in 1690156. In April 1702 the first battalion was in a camp between Antwerp and Lier and the second battalion was in Antwerp156b. In September 1702 the Deynse regiment was with the main force under Boufflers157. Deynse was mentioned as ordered to move on 1 February 1703158. On 17 June 1703 the Deynse was destined for Bedmar's army with two battalions158b. On 30 June 1703 the Deynse regiment fought in the battle of Ekeren158c. On 4 August 1703 it received orders to join the main army158d.On 29 February 1704 its first battalion was ordered to advance quarters in Namur159. Its second battalion was ordered to remain in garrison in Namur160. After 15 May 1704 the Deynse was in Bedmar's army of Brabant with 1 battalion.

*Capres (pre-1701 Walloon) 1702-1704

Jean François Benjamin Marquis de Bournonville and Baron de Capres (ca 1619 - 1719) was known as 'Marquis de Bournonville'. His first son François Antoine would be created Marquis de Rupit by Charles II on 25 January 1681. (François Antoine married Manuela de Eril, of which José (7 May 1689), Salvador. Eulalia, Antonio, Ana and Luis.) His second son Wolfgang Guillaume became Marquis de Sars in 1689, see below. The third son of Michel Joseph was Michel Joseph de Bournonville known as Baron de Capres (ca 1672 - 1752). He was the colonel of the Capres regiment and would created Duke of Bournonville in 1717 by Felipe V.

On 30 October 1701, the Capres regiment was in Gent, and thought destined for Richelle. In April 1702 the Capres was in Termonde with 1 battalion and in camp between Antwerp and Lier with 1 battalion161. The Capres was a 2 battalion regiment and according to Puységur this second battalion had begun to form in early february 1702162. On 17 June 1703 the second battalion was in Diest162b. On the same date the first battalion was destined for Bedmar's army162c. On 30 June 1703 the Capres regiment fought in the battle of Ekeren162d.On 29 February 1704 the first battalion was ordered to advance quarters near Louvain163. The second battalion was ordered to remain in garrison in or near Louvain164. After 15 May 1704 the Capres was in Bedmar's army of Brabant with 1 battalion. In 1704 or somewhat later the Baron de Capres became Captain of the royal company of Halbardiers of Flanders (La Compañia de las Reales Guardias de Alabarderos).

*Wrangel 1702-1703

The Wrangel regiment came to count 2 battalions and was commanded by baron Fabien de Wrangel165 (b. 1651 - + 30 August 1737), made a count on 6 January 1709165b. In the winter of 1701-1702 the Wrangel was in Upper Gelre with 2 battalions 1701165c. More precisely in November 1701 1 battalion was mentioned in Venlo, and one in Gelder165d. In June 1702 it had one battalion in Gelre and one in Rheinberg166. In the 1702 siege of Venlo the second battalion was in garrisson there (OHC 14 Sep 1702). In the list of prisoners taken after the assault on St. Michel fortress, there are: Brigadier Baron de Wrangel; Captain Amersbach of the Wrangel; Captain Neypez of the Wrangel grenadiers; Aide-major Van du Tongue of the Wrangel; Joseph Triquo Chirugien-major of the Wrangel 166b. From indetermined moments we have Léon Claude de Bousies, Seigneur et Vicomte de Rouvroy, Fayon from Hainaut as captain of infantry and Claude Henri de Bousies captain of Grenadiers in the Wrangel.

On 17 June 1703 the first battalion of Wrangel was in Gelre166c. On the same date its second battalion was in Diest166d, which may lead one to suppose that its second battalion had been in the surrender of Venlo. On 22 December 1703 the garrison of Gelre left after surrendering the town, and one can safely assume that the first battalion was among them.

*Milan 1702-1704

The Milan regiment had 2 battalions. In April 1702 these were both in Luxembourg167. In June 1703 its second battalion was designated to stay in garrison in Huninque168. In 1704 the two battalions of the Milan regiment were part of Tallard's force that marched to the Danube. During the Battle of Blenheim the Milan regiment was in Augsburg

*Spinola 1702-1704

The Spinola regiment was a Walloon regiment of 2 battalions. Its colonel was probably Philippe Charles Frédéric de Spinola (+1709) comte de Bruay, since 1695 governor and captain-general of the county of Namur. It might also have been his son Gabriel-Hyacinthe Spinola comte de Bruay (+30 Aug 1712). In April 1702 one battalion was in Brugge and one in nearby Damme169. In June 1702 a captain of the Spinola was wounded in the conquest of Middelburg in Flanders (OLC 19 June 1702). On 24 July 1702 two of its soldiers were hanged for desertion in Brugge (OLC 31 July 1702). In September 1702 it was in the second line of the main force under Boufflers170.

On 17 June 1703 the two battalions of the Spinola regiment were destined for Bedmar's army170b. On 23 November 1703 Jean Théodore de Kessel (1655 - ca. 1732) was appointed as captain-commandant of the second battalion of the 'Walloon' Spinola regiment170c. On 29 February 1704 it was ordered to remain in garrison in Antwerp with 2 battalions171. In April-May 1704 Spinola became maitre de camp, making that he quit his regiment, but he took it up again right after (OHC 8 May 1704)

*Comte de Montfort 1701-1704

This 1,500 men regiment was levied in Luxemburg by the Comte d'Autel, governor of Luxemburg. On 18 March 1701 the Comte de Montfort, brother of the Marquis de Deynse was appointed as Colonel172. On 15 October 1701 it arrived in Brussel. On 6 November 1701 the Montfort arrived to garrisson Roermond. In the winter of 1701-1702 the Montfort regiment was in Upper Guelre172b. In June 1702 one battalion was in Stevensweert while the other was in Rheinberg173. On 1 February 1703 it was mentioned as ordered to Luxembourg174. On 21 April 1703 or 1704 Pierre Gilles van der Straten (1671-1710) was appointed as captain in the Comte de Montfort regiment174b. In June 1703 it was planned to remain in garrison with the first battalion near Saarlouis and the second near Sarrebourg175. In 1704 the two battalions of the Montfort regiment were part of Tallard's force that marched to the Danube. During the Battle of Blenheim the Montfort regiment was taken prisoner in Blindheim.

*Leyde / Hainaut 1702-1703

The Leyde regiment was levied in the country side of Hainaut, and therefore also known as Hainault regiment. Apart from its colonel the Chévalier de Leyde, all officers were French of Irish (perhaps from previously disbanded French Irish regiments?). The orders from the province where that all recruits were to be present in MOns on 8 October176176b. On 17 April 1702 it was in Diest177. It was ordered to Luxembourg on 1 February 1703178. In June 1703 it was planned to be in the Upper Rhine army179.

*Van der Gracht 1702-1704

In October 1701 this regiment was mentioned as the new regiment of the '5 free companie of Charles V', and as being awarded to Van der Gracht, lt-colonel of the Deynse regiment180. This was by Guillaume Gregoire van der Gracht later seigneur de Swyveghem180a. In November 1701 the Vandergracht arrived in Vilvoorde. In April 1702 Vandergracht regiment was in Santvliet180b. The Vandergracht was mentioned as ordered to Luxembourg on 1 feb 1703181. In June 1703 it was in the Upper Rhine army182. In February 1704 it was ordered to remain in garrison in Nivelle183.

*Fusiliers de l'artillerie 1702-1705

The Fusiliers de l'arteillerie were also known as Fusiliers d'Espagne. Guarding the artillery was their prime responsibility. In April 1702 it was in camp between Antwerp and Lier184. On 13 August 1702 Colonel Marechal was recruiting for a Fuseliers regiment in Gent AC 17 Aug 1702.On 17 June 1703 the Fusiliers were destined for Bedmar's army184b. On 30 June 1703 the Fusiliers regiment fought in the battle of Ekeren184c. On 4 August 1703 it received orders to leave its camp at Duren and to join the main army184d. On 29 February 1704 it was ordered to advance quarters near Malines185. In 1705 it took part in the siege of Huy186. It was also mentioned in 1707 and 1708.

*Dumont 1702-1705

In June 1702 the Dumont regiment was probably in Roermond187. On 17 June 1703 the Dumont regiment was in Gelre187b, and one can safely assume that it was among the troops which returned to the army after the capitulation of that town in December 1703. In May 1705 a Spanish captain Osorio passed at Sas van Gent because he had been dismissed after not being able to complete his company in the Dumont regiment187b. The full name of the commander was Marc-Antoine Baron du Mont, commander of Léau, who died in 1718.

In April 1702 the Caracciolo regiment was in Charleroy188. On 17 June 1703 the Caraccioli regiment was in Namur188b. On 4 August 1703 it received orders to leave its garrison in Flanders and to join the main army188c. In February 1704 it was ordered to remain in garrison in or near Louvain189. In November 1706 the OHC stated that the Caraccioli had been disbanded, and Brigadier Caraccioli had been made colonel of the Grimaldi the younger.

*De Sars 1702-1705

The De Sars regiment was commanded by Wolfgang Guillaume de Bournonville (? - 1754). This de Bournonville was the second son of Jean François Benjamin Marquis de Bournonville and Baron de Capres (ca 1619 - 1719). On 1 September 1689 Wolfgang became Marquis de Sars190, for lands he had probably inherited from an aunt. This is probably how the regiment got its name, because without this title Wolfgang would have styled himself 'Baron de Capres' and now his junior brother (see above) availed himself of that title. Later Wolfgang also became Marquis de Bournonville.

In April 1702 the De Sars regiment was in the Chartreuse of Liège190b. In June 1702 it was stated that the regiment 'de Sarre' was composed of militia from the county of Namur and the Duchy of Limbourg191. On 17 June 1703 the Sarre regiment was in Damme191b. On 30 June 1703 the Sarre regiment fought in the battle of Ekeren191c. On 4 August 1703 it received orders to leave its camp at Duren and to join the main army191d.

*Bryas / Croy 1702-1703

The colonel of this regiment was Englebert Fréderic comte de Bryas, marquis de Molinghem, baron de Moriamé et d'Hernicourt etc. (1 Nov. 1677 - 30 June 1703), who had been appointed on 6 February 1702199. In April 1702 the Brias was in Namur199b. In June 1702 Puységur designated the Brias regiment as being very weak200. The Brias regiment was mentioned as ordered to Luxembourg on 1 feb 1703201. On 30 June 1703 the Brias regiment fought in the battle of Ekeren and had its colonel killed201b. On 4 August 1703 the 'Brias' received orders to leave its camp at Duren and to join the main army201c

Colonel Bryas was succeeded by N. prince de Croy201d. This N. prince de Croy could be Alexandre the son of Ferdinand Gaston Lamoral de Croy and Anne Antoinette de Berghes, who was killed in the Battle on the Speyerbach on 15 November 1703201e. It's however much more likely that Alexandre was in the cavalry regiment of Chaconne/Croy/Acosta, and we're dealing with another prince de Croy here. The regiment was later given to N. chevalier de Bournonville201f.

*De la Faille / Flanders 1702-1706

The De la Faille was a 2 battalion regiment commanded by the Groot Baljuw of Gent Ferdinand-Hippolyte della Faille202. In January 1702 it was mentioned as the Provincial Flanders regiment that was being levied (OHC 10 January 1702). In mid-march it then did its first exercises (OHC 16 March 1702). In April 1702 one of its battalions was in camp between Antwerp and Lier202b. On 17 June 1703 the two battalions of the La Faille were destined for the main force202c. It was mentioned as ordered to remain in camp at Neer-Hespen on 17 March 1704203. In March 1705 it was perceived to move from Brugge to Dendermonde with two battalions203b. It was again mentioned as the Spanish La Faille in 1705204; 1706

Benavidès

The Benavidès regiment was most probably named after Isidoro Juan Jose Domingo de La Cueva y Benavides Marquis of Bedmar, but it could just as well have belonged to one of his relations. It was mentioned as ordered to move from Louvain to Léau on 1 February 1703205. On 30 June 1703 it fought in the battle of Ekeren205b. On 4 August 1703 it received orders to leave its camp at Duren and to join the main army205c. In February 1704 it was ordered to remain in garrison in Namur206.

In early November 1701 there was mention that Brabant would levy a regiment that would be commanded by the Comte de Rupelmonde207a. In April 1702 the Rupelmonde was in Antwerp207b. Rupelmonde was ordered to move from Nivelle in 1703208. On 17 June 1703 the Rupelmonde was destined for Bedmar's army208b. On 30 June 1703 the Rupelmonde regiment fought in the battle of Ekeren208c.

During the events of early 1704 the Rupelmonde was ordered to the Upper-Rhine and in July 1704 it was there in Villeroy's army210. In 1706 it was in Bergues with one weak battalion211. On 1 January 1707 the Rupelmonde passed from Spanish to French service. In 1711 the chevalier de Bournonville became its colonel, and in 1712 the regiment was disbanded211b.

*Grimberghes

In April 1702 the Grimberg regiment was in Antwerp212. In early June 1702 Puységur stated that the Grimberghes battalion was not yet complete213.

*De Pas Feuquier

Probably also known as: 'Pas'. In April 1702 the regiment De Pas was mentioned as being in Luxembourg226. On 17 June 1703 the De Pas regiment was in Luxembourg226b. In June 1703 it was probably the De Pas regiment which was designated to stay in garrison in Seelestadt227. It might be possible that the regiment mentioned as Depas in Marcin's post-Blenheim army on the Upper Rhine is identical to this one228.

*Certani

In April 1702 the Certani regiment was in Namur229. In June 1702 Puységur designated the Certani regiment as being very weak230. On 17 June 1703 the Certani regiment was in Namur230b. In 1704 the Certani was left in Kehl.
