The role of Regimental leader may occasionally be split into the Professional Commander (Coronel) and the Ceremonial Commander (Coronel-in-Chief), although this practice is more common in the Imperial Army and Huscarles units than in the Imperial Marines. The only Imperial Marine Regiment where this has occurred, is the Marine Guard Regiment whose Coronel-in-Chief is the Emperor.
The rank is often misused (and even misspelled) to mean the Leader of a Guerilla Unit, whatever its size.
- The equivalent rank in the Imperial Navy is Captain (IN).
- The equivalent rank in the Imperial Army is Colonel
History & Background (Dossier)
The word "colonel" derives from the same root as the word "column" (Italian: colonna) and means "of a column", and, by implication, "commander of a column". The word "colonel" is therefore linked to the word "column" in a similar way that "brigadier" is linked to "brigade", although in English this relationship is not immediately obvious. By the end of the late medieval period, a group of "companies" was referred to as a "column" of an army.
