The Duchy of Oldenburg

Oldenburg Infantry


The Duchy of Oldenburg joined the confederation of the Rhine in 1808 and was required to provide a single battalion of infantry to the Confederation forces. In 1810 Oldenburg was annexed as part of Metropolitan France and its troops were incorporated into the 129th French line infantry regiment. In 1813 a new infantry regiment of two battalions, one regular one landwehr, was raised for service with the Allies. Other than the French line infantry pattern of 1810 - 12, I have been unable to obtain information regarding flags issued to this unit, or indeed if any ever were. The design presented here is based on an artwork by Jaume Olle of a state flag of Oldenburg dated 1820. I have scaled the flag to 130cm Sq.
