The paper highlights the participation of Croatian military units in the Thirty Years’ War by discussing the engagement of Croatian nobles and their interrelationship with the structures of the Military Border. The local nobility, confronted with various internal problems, tries to answer the challenges of the Thirty Years’ War and these leads to very complex situation on different levels. On the one hand Croatian nobles, through the Croatian Sabor, try to limit their engagement in the Thirty Years’ War by organizing the border defense and by focusing on internal problems such as the formation of Military Border, settling of Vlach population, weakening the institution of ban as well as Ottoman incursions. The king, on the other hand, with the help of Military Border authorities and Vlach population, uses the opportunity to simultaneously weaken the position of the Croatian nobility and provide the necessary soldiers for the war. At the same time, one part of the Croatian nobility is incorporated into the structures of Military Border which directly binds them to the military service in Thirty Years' War irrespectively of the view of Croatian Sabor. Such different models of engagement of Croatian nobility in the war reflected itself on the soldiers, who should be distinguished as their characteristics and activities in the war differ significantly. Although Croatian soldiers in the war did not participate in large numbers, their name became a symbol for lightly armed irregular troops, and often provoked fear and dislike among opponents.
