Officer's Rank list 1866

The following rank list was published at Puebla in late summer 1866 titled "Rangs- und Eintheilungsliste sämmtlicher Herrn Stabs- und Ober-Offiziere und Parteien des kais. mexicanischen Corps österreichischer Freiwilliger". The spelling of some name deviate from the spelling in the official military Schematismus of the k.u.k. Army but it is it is reproduced here as it was published in Mexico and see under "Notes" for spelling corrections . The life guard, called Guardia Palatina, was formed by 4 officers, 3 non-commissioned officers and 26 guards. The guard was part of the court and not the army but the officers and NCOs were selected former members of the Austro-Hungarian Army and consequently the names of these officers are entered in the following list, taken from the "Almanaque de la Corte", published in 1866 at Mexico.
