The 1st (Emperor Alexander) Guards Grenadiers were an elite infantry regiment of the Guards Corps within the Prussian army and a Guards Grenadier regiment of the Imperial German army. The regiments tradition dates back to 1626 when the regiment was established during the 30 years war as a permanent mercenary unit. The 1st Grenadier regiment was formed towards the end of the Naploeonic wars in 1814 by Fredeick WIlliam III of Prussia and named in honour of Alexander I who was its first Colonel in Chief.
The regiment later saw action in the Franco-Prussian war and also during WW1.
As the uniforms for this regiment date for the period 1900-1914, they are included in the Great War series.
