  1. Prince Leopold was Chief of the 7 th westfalisches Dragoner Regiment Feldmarschall Prinz Leopold von Bayern on the Pic he is wearing a Field grey uniform . stand and fall collar . they are not buttons visible so one tends to think of a Bluse . If it is the uniform of the Dragoons then the backing of the shoulder cords must be cornflower blue with a inner piping of rosa rot ,rose red ,the regimental distinctive colour of the 7th 

  2. Hello ,Republica de Nueva Granada was the name of a Nation of the North of South America which was created in 1831 and existed until 1858 being replaced by the Grenadine Confederation which transformed in 1863 into The United States of Colombia .

  5. 13 hours ago, Carol I said:

    I see no contradiction with the batons in the Royal Library that could have been the symbol of the king's position as commander in chief of the army. The presence of the decorative Savoyard knots on one of them places it undeniably in Savoy.

    Of course, the Savoyan Knot could relate to de Sardinian Dinasty or to Savoia Carignan Branch ,punctually ,Prince Eugen Of Savoy Carignan the great Feldherr in Habsburg service . I searched for portraits of Sardinian and Italian Kings looking for Marshal batons .no finds 

  6. Hello Gentlemen , South American sword ? I not believe, Argentine , Chile , Brazil ,Bolivia ,Peru , Colombia, Equator and Venezuela and Uruguay ,used French or German types of swords and sabres . Your sword is much alike to the Spanish sword sabre ,sic Puerto Seguro .in use since 1903 . with variants . or perhaps is a Canadian variant of the British 1908 . It looks as a very well made piece of good materials . 

  7. Carol I , As I explained before the title of Maresciallo d Italia was a creation of Mussolini naturally under the Savoia Dinasty Reign . Two of these Marshals were Armando Diaz and Pietro Badoglio. Both batons are conserved and were of Ivory with gold fittings ,covered with dark red velvet and with Savoia crosses on the body . silver crosses .
