Kavallerie Regiment Nr.2 "Grenadiere von Wanzenau"

The second Regiment of Horse bears the honoury distintion of "Grenadier".  Although their function is the same as the Dragoon Regiments, KR.2 "von Wanzenau" has been thus named due to it's outstanding performance during the Turkish Wars.

Since formation, the Regiment has been led by members of the powerful von Wanzenau family.  Through loyalty and sacrifice, they have attained an enviable postion within Beimbach-Schönau.  Holding large estates in the western portion of the State, they are amongst our wealthiest families. 

Wearing the "standard" Cavalry uniform of a Blood-Red coat and Black hat (albiet with the addition of fine white lace) the Regiment differs by maintaining an elite company that wears a fur cap similar to that sported by KV.1.

The Regimental details are thus:

Officers wear metallic "Gold" lace and buttons.
Elite Troopers have a Burned Orange and Yellow cap bag.
Horse Furniture is Blood-Red trimmed Gold/Yellow.

Inhaber: Fridolin, Graf von Wanzenau.
