The Königlich Bayerisches Infanterie-Regiment "Orff" Nr. 17 was formed on 24 July 1878, when the 6th, 8th, and 10th Bavarian Jäger Battalions (the 6th and 8th Jäger Bttlns. participated in the Austro-Prussian War; all three participated in the Franco-Prussian War, fighting at Wissembourg, Wörth, Chatillon, Sedan, and the Siege of Paris) were consolidated into one unit. It was stationed in Germerscheim in the Bavarian Palatinate (Pfalz.)
