The Zealand Artillery Regiment (Danish: Sjællandske Artilleriregiment) was an artillery regiment of the Royal Danish Army. On 1 August 1982 it was merged with Kronens Artilleriregiment to form Kongens Artilleriregiment.

History[edit]

In 1803 the Danish artillery corps was split into three Brigades, Holstenske Artilleribrigade, Danske Artilleribrigade and Norske Artilleribrigade (disbanded in 1814). The Regiment traces its history back to Holstenske Artilleribrigade. In the First Schleswig War the Regiment (then named 2. Artilleriregiment) participated on the Schleswig-Holstein side and was afterwards disbanded.
