This is a list of numbered infantry regiments of the Armée Impériale from the foundation of the Empire until today.


Rank and Numbering

Establishment and Precedence

The ranks of regiments of the Armée Impériale were first fixed during the Sixteen Years' War (1618-1634). Doubts as to the respective rank of fighting at the Caridean Islands led Célestin V to summon a board of his generals in June 1619 to establish the order of precedence of the various units. A further meeting was held by Prince Impériale Célestin (latter Empereur Célestin VI) to finally fix the ranks.

The rank or precedence of regiments was fixed by the following criteria:

  • imperial Castairian regiments, raised directly by the Empereur, should rank from their date of raising.
  • regiments from the constituent states should rank from the date they came onto the Castairian establishment.


While the regiments normally were known by the name of their commander, or by their imperial title, the number of their rank was increasingly used. To beware the commanding (and often funding) officers from marking their "personal troops", they were not allowed to put any sign of ownership (arms, crest etc.) on the uniforms. The regiment's colours had to hold the regimental rank in the middle (painted or embroidered). As the overall size of the army expanded and contractred througout the several conflicts of the 17th century, junior regiments were often established and later disbanded. According to that, there were of a number of different regiments holding the same number in different time periods.
