Regiment van Beveren




Een mooi artikel over dit regiment op de website van Mars et Historia, met een vaandeldrager uit 1673, toen dit regiment 'Utenhove' of 'Uytenhove' heette.

Het regiment werd in 1635 opgericht op Regiment Frederik Hendrik van Nassau. Het plaatje komt natuurlijk uit de collectie Ten Raa, en is NIET te vinden op de website van het Legermuseum, dus dank aan M&H om het op hun website te plaatsen.

A very nice article on the website of Mars en Historia on this regiment, with a picture from the ten Raa collcection of a 'vaandrig' (flag carrier) of the regiment in 1673, in the time that the regiment was called 'Utenhoven'. This regiment was raised in 1635 as regiment Walen. The picture is not to be seen on the site of the Dutch Army museum, so a lot of thanks to M&H to put this pic up.

7 opmerkingen:

  1. Are you certain that Bevern originally was Hofwegen? Het Staatsche Leger V and VI show a different lineage than you describe for Bevern.

  2. Are we discussing 'Van Beveren' or 'Von Bevern'?

  3. Dan, go here:
    http://www.marsethistoria.nl/
    click on 'Kwartaalperiodiek' on the left,
    scroll down to the pic (seen here as well), with the caption 'IS NOOIT HET VAENDEL VOOR DEN DACH GECOOME!'
    click on the picture, and the article shows up
    the article links the older flag with the flag of Nassau-Wallon

  4. ...which means I linked it to the wrong regiment. It should be 'Regiment Walen' with original Colonel Frederik Hendrik Graaf van Nassau.

  5. Visited the Mars en Historia site. The author of the article describes the coat of van Beveren as black. In fact, it is a dark blue (indigo).

  6. I hope to have a personal look at the Ten Raa collection soon, and maybe there's more to be found.

    The reader of this blog, might want to know that the uniform reference of Dan Schorr comes from Belaubre, Les Armees qui combattirent Louis XIV, 1er partie, Hollandem p. 36. I hope mr Belaubre will reissue his works again for the general public.

  7. I was not referring to Belaubre's work, but rather to a color copy of the original, and by the way, the copy in the Ten Raa Collection at the Legermuseum is a redrawing of the original work by N. Robitscheck that is part of the Collection Gustave de Ridder, Cabinet des Estampes, Bibliotheque Nationale.
