2nd Company Mousquetiers de la Garde

Known as the Black Musketeers because of their horse colour, this unit was made up from the old Cardinal's personal guards in the time of Louis XIII. But Officers and musicians of all the units of Guard cavalry rode greys.The other main difference between the 2nd and 1st company lies in the lace colour - the latter was gold and the former one was silver. There were also tiny differences in the detailing around the cross on the front and back of the soubreveste.
Figures are by Front Rank.
