History[edit]

Formation[edit]

Those few members of the Principes Guards who obeyed the order to withdraw to Prefecture X issued by Exarch Jonah Levin continued to serve the Republic of the Sphere with fervent loyalty as the brigade rebuilt; the Eleventh Principes Guards was one of the Guards regiments to survive the recall order, and remained completely loyal to Devlin Stone as the Republic Armed Forces rebuilt frantically. The core of the Eleventh were two companies of Knights-Errant, with Standing Guard volunteers forming the bulk of the remaining MechWarriors. By 3145, the Eleventh was the most experienced of the various Guards commands, and had taken an active part in the Republican hunt for the reformed Com Guard. During the battles at Luyten 68-28, the Eleventh was responsible for smashing the Omega One facility belonging to the Com Guard First Division.[1]

The Eleventh and Twelfth Principes took part in the Republic's successful liberation of Robinson for the Federated Suns. Two lances of the fearsome Marauder IIC drawn from the Eleventh and Twelfth Principes would brutally savage the Draconis Combine's elite Seventh Sword of Light during the siege of Bueller, downing over fifteen Seventh Sword 'Mechs. Reinforcements from the First Ghost and Ryuken-go would ultimately cost half the attacking Principes Marauder IICs, but the remainder held the line long enough for additional Republic forces to arrive and smash the Combine flanks.[2]

3145[edit]

In common with the tactics preferred by most Knights the Eleventh concentrated on a mobile, fluid style of warfare utilizing both their heavy and assault BattleMechs and the fast-assault vehicle support available to the regiment.[1]
