Imperial dragoon of Butler regiment, 1630s

This nice Imperial dragoon I found in the old article by Christian Terana (Uniformes, vol 100, Jan-Feb 1987)

  1. But wasn't Butler's regiment of dragoons created after 1629, when Jacob Butler moved with his soldiers from Polish to Imperial service? I need to check in Wrede. With that buffcoat he rather looks like very late 20's, early 30's soldier.

  2. Aye, I check in Wrede - Jacob Butler's regiment started service in Imperial army in 1631, in 1633 was taken over by Walter Butler (when Jacob Butler and part of his regiment return to Poland to take part in Smolensk War).

  4. Jacob Butler is one of my favourite officers from 1st half of century that's why I was pretty sure I was right in first comment :)
