Another portrait by an unknown artist simply titled: "Bergstaat Highlander". As with much of its history, Bergstaat was divided by geographical lines during the war. The lowland east, with its factories and forges leaned towards the promises made by the Communist UWP, while the mountainous north was staunchly Monarchist.
This highland fellow is easily recognized by oversized beret. His raspberry pom-pom distinguishes him as a grenadier. The Bergstaat highland grenadiers suffered high casualties in the fighting around Geseburg. The remnants of these tenacious troops were later folded into the regular Ludwigian forces.
