Polish Cavalry Regiment
During the 17th century Polish cavalry regiments did not have a permanent organisation. Regiments were usually created for a given campaign, but sometimes they were formed for a single battle. Traditionally the king's and hetman's regiments were the most numerous in the army, numbering as much as 2000 men in more than ten banners, while those less numerous could include only several banners and 400-500 men.
Reiters in Swedish service were divided, depending on the type of recruitment, into national and mercenary reiters. National reiters were organized into seven regiments (four Swedish and three Finnish) and were all volunteers. A national regiment included 8 companies, theoretically each should number 125 privates and 13 officers, but actual strength was far from those numbers. Mercenary regiments on the other had were usually made up of Germans.
On 3 March 1655 Pfalzgraf Philip von Sulzbach, received a license for forming of a reiter regiment with 9 companies of 70-80 reiters each
