von Tiefenbach Dragoons "Die Blauen Ritter"

The inhaber of this regiment is Michael von Tiefenbach one of the richest men in the empire, he has purchased blue roan horses for every man within the regiment and keeps a number of sizable stub farms across the south of the empire. A new regiment only raised recently they have yet to be tested in battle.

The regiment is commanded in the field by Lieutenant Colonel Charles von Königsmarck a native of Vandenburg who has fallen out of favour in the court of King Oskar of Brussia. Whilst the Lt. Colonel is keeping quiet about what happened rumours abound within the court of Pappenheim from embezzlement of military funds to a dalliance with the kings niece.

There has been some consternation within the ducal court as the regiment was authorised to carry a black standard however they arrived at their first inspection by the Duke carrying the white standard shown here. This has caused some friction with the Comte von Tilly Chevauxleger as they are authorised to carry the white standard.
