Louis I Rosiere leading the coastal siege on Matria, circa; 1640.

 


The constant warfare that defined the struggles of the four principalities of Adreo forced the respective monarchies to develop professional armies, innovate in the field of warfare, and create a meritocratic chain of command. The Hundred Years’ War proved that feudal levies were unreliable and a strain on the economy, and thus the use of mercenaries and smaller, but better-trained, armies became the norm. Before the plague forced the people of Rosenyr from their homes struck most of the aristocracy had only a few household guards sworn to them, for most of the military was comprised of career soldiers.

 

Although the military of Rosenyr is centralized and state-run, the practice of knighthood and chivalry still plays in important role in the principalities’ culture. Knights, while able to enlist in the military at a high station, usually find service among one of the many families in Rosenyr. Most of the knighthood is comprised of the aristocracy and gentry of the principality, but is technically open to anyone.

 

The nobility has always been closely-tied with the military. In centuries past they would provide their own armies of peasants and soldiers sworn to them personally. However with the introduction of the professional army the role of the aristocracy changed drastically. Sons seeking to join the military were trained in the matters befitting an officer, which involved leading, tactics, and logistics more than it did fighting. At the height of Rosenyr’s army, over eighty-percent of the general officer corps was comprised of men with noble lineage.


It is not titles that honour men, but men that honour titles.

-Rosnian Proverb


ORGANIZATION

The army of Rosenyr was divided into regiments comprised of seven-thousand and five-hundred men back on Adreo, but with the recent plague and flight to Atlas the organization of La Grande Armée has undergone changes to adjust to the violent decline in population. Of the original twenty regiments within the army of Rosenyr only one remains. Régiment I, the final Rosnian regiment, stands to defend the prince and his lands, as well as the people of his principality.

 


RANKING

The hierarchy that binds the Grand Armée together.

 

MARSHAL  | MARECHAL

The overall commander of the principalities’ forces, the Marshal of  Rosenyr holds martial authority that is only superseded by the prince himself. Because of the various tasks that must be performed by the Marshal, from logistics to diplomacy to organization, much of the actual tactical leading is done by his subordinates. However when the time comes for war there is no strategist more skilled than the Marshal himself.

 

AIDE-DE-CAMP  | AIDE-DE-CAMP

The Aide-de-Camp is the head of the Marshal’s staff. He holds the authority to take command of the army if the Marshal is unable too, and thus must be prepared to fill the role of a commander. The Aide-de-Camp also serves as the Marshal’s premier administrator and diplomat, meaning those who fill the role must be well-rounded in all capacities of a martial, diplomatic, and administrative nature.

 

GENERAL  | GENERAL DE ARMÉE

The generals of Rosenyr are some of the keenest tactical minds that Atlas has to offer. They do much of the training and leading of the army itself, sometimes even with the Marshal himself present. Generals are often pulled from the capable nobility and gentry that have proven themselves as officers, but any soldier may rise to such a rank if they demonstrate their capabilities.

 

CAPTAIN | CAPITAINE

A commissioned officer with the potential of holding various types of commands, the captains of the army are some of the most versatile individuals in the army. A captain may find themself at the helm of an artillery battery, on the staff of a general, or in command of a baggage train.

 

LIEUTENANT | LIEUTENANT

The most promising young nobleman and noncommissioned officers are raised to the rank of lieutenant. They are often assigned to serve on the staff of captains and generals, but may have the opportunity to lead small contingents themselves.

 

SERGEANT  |  SERGENT

Sergeants are the most trusted, veteran noncommissioned officers that La Grande Armee has to boast. They are on the path to becoming officers themselves, but they are still trusted, often more than lieutenants or even captain, to lead men into battle. Sergeants are the model soldier: dutiful, loyal, and passionate.

 

CORPORAL | CAPORAL

Soldiers who have proven their skill in combat, loyalty to the prince, and willingness to follow instructions are granted the rank of corporal. While not holding much authority on its own, the rank serves to distinguish the soldiers from the recruits, and the men from the boys.

 

FOOTMAN  | SOLDAT

Footman are the entry-level soldiers who are generally untrained and unproven. Much of their early days as a soldier are spent training, learning, and drilling. Once a footman has tasted combat and shown their worth they are then promoted to corporal.
