Re: Need help finding image of Louis XIII Royal Musketeers Flag

Some pictures by Stefano della Bella (one of my favorite TYW-era artists), made c. 1640, showing French troops, among them Mousquetaires du Roi

The cavalry in the background on the right wearing cassocks with crosses - no flag around

A trumpeter who appears to be wearing a cassock with a cross, probably of the King's musketeers.
