Chapters: Preobrazhensky Regiment, Narodnoe Opolcheniye, Imperial Guard, Izmaylovsky Regiment, Russian-german Legion, Semenovsky Regiment, Chevalier Guard Regiment, Egersky Regiment, Volinsky Regiment. Excerpt: The Preobrazhensky Regiment (Russian: ) was one of the oldest regiments of the Russian army. It was formed by Peter the Great in the late 17th century from his poteshnye voiska (, 'droll forces') during his military games in the village of Preobrazhenskoye (now, a locality in Moscow). The Preobrazhensky regiment distinguished itself during the Great Northern War of 17001721, the Patriotic War of 1812, and the Russo-Turkish War of 1877-1878. The regiment was disbanded by its last commander, Colonel Alexander Kutepov (later a general) in December 1917. The life-guard of Catherine the Great, as well as the main supporter of her bloodless coup against her husband Peter III, this regiment was declared the highest in order of military precedence from 14 July 1762. In the 18th and 19th centuries, membership was reserved to young Russian aristocrats and was considered a proof of loyalty to the government and Tsar. Among its membership was the Russian composer Modest Mussorgsky. The Regimental flag was of St. George's colours with inscription: "For displayed feats in battle of Kulm 17th of August 1813". (Date given in old style Julian Calendar 29 August 1813 NS). This colour was given to the Regiment in order to celebrate its action at Kulm, where the outnumbered Preobrazhensky regiment withstood the charge of French troops. The March of the Preobrazhensky Regiment ( ) is a very famous Russian march, written in the time of Peter the Great. It was also used as an unofficial national anthem in imperial times. It is used often in Russia, also in the annual. More: Books, , Russian-Military-Units-and-Formations-of-the-Napoleonic-Wars~~Books-LLC, , , , , , , , , , General Books LLC
