In the wake of the Polish Invasion, there were four SS combat regiments: Leibstandarte, Deutschland, Germania and Der Führer. The latter three were reorganized into the SS-Verfügungs-Division, and the Leibstandarte was expanded into a motorized brigade.
In December 1940 the Germania Regiment would be removed from the Verfügungs-Division and used to form the cadre of a new division, SS-Division Germania, comprising mostly 'Nordic' volunteers from the newly-conquered territories, Danes, Norwegians, Dutch and Flemings; it was soon renamed 'Wiking'.
