Part 3 of my series covering my imagi-nation, the Barryat of Lyndonia, features Le Régiment des Royal-Cravates:


Here's a sample pic from the above link:

Wonderful brushwork. It's nice to see the big regiments.

Great work and thanks for the detailed dig on who exactly those French were in Barry Lyndon – love the look of your "big battalions"

Beautiful painting and a great spectacle- you should be proud Arteis. It is almost like looking at the Barry Lyndon scene.

BTW I once recall reading in a French journal, that the real Royal-Cravates (cavalry as you rightly observe) was heavily recruited with Irishmen in the mid c18th.

Saw that article in WI.

What is the source, the Regiment Royal Cravates Cavalerie's control registry doesn't reflect at all this recruitment, nor Croatian or at least foreigners,
mainly simply Frenchmen
