ROYAL KRONOBERGS REGIMENT
The regiment traced its heritage to the fänika (tactical unit
used in the late dark ages) raised in the 1500:s in Småland. These where used by Gustaf

two smaller regiments of wich one became Kronobergs regiment. The other became Kalmar
regiment. The first commander was the later wellknown Herman Wrangel. In 1920 the regiment
was located in Växjö and in 1925 it absorbed the Karlskrona grenadierregiment. Kronobergs
regiment was disbanded in 1990.
