Bayreuth Cuirassiers

The District (Kreis) of Franconia supplied a cuirassier regiment to the Reichsarmee during the Seven Years' War. The regiment consisted of 5 squadrons (each of 2 companies) for a total of 666 men. It was formed from troops contributed by 23 distinct contingents and had rather an uninspiring reputation despite it looking very Prussian.
