The Thirteenth Royal French Demi-Brigade was a part of the Star League Defense Force Regular Army. It was one of the SLDF's Royal units, which consisted of troops from the Terran Hegemony.

History[edit]

The Thirteenth was formed from the French Foreign Legion. As humanity spread through the stars, the First Foreign Regiment of the Foreign Legion was split into smaller units and deployed farther and faster from Terra. The Thirteenth was one of those smaller units, and was stationed on Le Blanc in the Federated Suns. When the Star League founded, all Foreign Legion units were recalled and mustered into service in the SLDF as Royal French Regiments.[1]

In 2664 and 2692 the Thirteenth won the Best Regiment award at the Martial Olympiad.[2]

In 2764 the unit was assigned as a part of the LVI Corps, Nineteenth Army, to an undisclosed world within the Taurian Concordat area of the Periphery Military Region.[1] At this time it was one of the largest units of the Royal French Regiments. In 2765 it was stationed on Coromodir.[1]

It later moved to an undisclosed area of the Periphery by 2765 in response to the Periphery Uprising.[3] The 13th survived the uprising and the Hegemony Campaign, but the final fate of the 13th is currently unknown.[3]
