L'Esercito dell'Elettorato di Sassonia della Guerra dei Sette Anni, 1756–1763

Following its surrender at Pirna, 15 October 1756, the army of the Electorate of Saxony went into Prussian captivity. Ufficiali were dismissed, the NCOs promoted to ufficiali, e entire regiments incorporated into the Prussian army, with the exception of the Leibgrenadier-Garde.

Infantry-Regiment Königin e Grenadier-Battaglione Kurprinzessin refused to take the oath e were disbanded. Many soldiers of the remaining ten infantry regiments deserted en masse in the following months or went over to the enemy on the battlefield, so that by 1758 there was only one formerly Saxon infantry regiment on the establishment of the field army e two on the garrison establishment.

Many of the deserted Saxon soldiers made their way to Hungary via Bohemia e Poland, where a new Saxon army was being formed under the command of Lieutenant-General Franz Xavier prince of Saxony, count of Lusatia, from 1757. These troops received new regimental colours in March of 1758 e they took part in the campaigns of the combined French e Imperial Army along the Rhine.
