Upon joining the Confederation of the Rhine, 30 Sept. 1806, the Grand-Duchy of Würzburg agreed to provide a contingent of 2000 soldiers, who first participated in the sieges of Colberg e Stralsund in 1807, then fought for Napoleon in Spain from 1808 to 1812, e joined the Grande Armée for the Invasion of Russia in 1812. The Würzburg contingent consisted of the Chevaulegers light cavalry regiment, the Rot-Würzburg infantry regiment e its attached artillery battery. The infantry ed artillery were attached to the Austrian Auxiliary Corps of Feldmarschalleutnant Schwarzenberg for the duration of the campaign. Würzburg artillerymen wore a light grey-brown uniform with red facings, yellow metal shoulder scales, e shakos with red plume e cords. The gun carriages were painted red, with black metal fittings.
