I.R. #36 was recruited in Bohemia.
Their facing color is "Gris de lin", the color of Flax flowers. Often described as mauve, the examples I saw were closer to Lavender. I used Delta CC Lavender, darkened a bit with a touch of Delta CC Pansy so that the hue would show up better.
Heirloom Flax flowers. Flax fibers are of course also used to make linen, and the seeds are both edible and used to make linseed oil. A very useful plant!
The Inhaber of the Regiment was Furstenberg, Feldmarschalleutnant Karl-Aloys, Furst zu Furstenberg from 1792 -1799, vacant from 1799 - 1801, then Feldzugmeister Johann-Karl, Graf Kolowrat-Krakowsky. Furstenberg was killed at the Battle of Liptingen (25 March 1799).
In 1809, the regiment formed part of Bellegarde's I Corps.
It fought at Aspen, Wagram, and Znaim.
