Austrian infantry regiment Pallavicini (IR 15) was just recently added to my SYW Austrians. Raised in 1740, by Inhaber Lt. Gen. Gian-Luca Pallavicini (Genoa), they served well during the Italian campaign. Despite the Austrians being bested by the combined Spanish and Neapolitan army they particularly distinguished themselves at Velletri,. At the Battle of Madonna dell'Olmo, they made up part of the reserve formations.
During the start of the Bohemian campaign of 1757, both battalions were part of Koningsegg’s army facing Bevern’s Prussian. Both battalions served at the Battle of Reichenberg and the following month found themselves in the first line at the Battle of Prague. The defense of Dresden (1760) added further laurel’s to their war record.
