On the basis of available groups of various sources, one can get an insight into the everyday lives of mercenaries who were employed in the service of the Habsburg Empire at the turn of the 16th –17th century (like in the case of histories of regiments which were fashionable in 19th –20th century). This study examines the history of the infantry regiment hired and led by Johann von Pernstein during the Long Turkish War (1591/93–1606). Although Pernstein’s mercenaries served and fought in the Kingdom of Hungary in 1597 for just a few months. They took part in the unsuccessful siege of Győr (between 9 September and 3 October) and then in the battles in Vác-Verőce (between 2 November and 9 November). Because their Obrist Pernstein was killed on September 30, the regiment left without a leader, they were disbanded at the end of the expedtition. Its members continued to serve in other new corpses.
