Update Rijksmuseum Seneffe II





Detail van een prent van Bouttats. Let op de ruiters met het W monogram en de vaandels van het regiment Garde te Paard. Naar mijn bescheiden mening een geel vaandel met daarop het wapen van Willem III, als afgebeeld door Hoynck van Papendrecht op de schoolplaat.



Another print from the Rijksmuseum, this time a cut out from a print by Bouttats. Note the horsmen with the W monogram, plus the standards of the Garde te Paard, the dutch Horse Guards. Looks like a yellow standard with the weapon of William III on it, as depicted earlier on Hoynck van Papendrechts 1672 school plate.

5 opmerkingen:

  1. Salve, they seem to have some sort of lances and one of them is using a war hammer?

  2. Sort of...lanncers were out of the Dutch Army a long time ago, maybe for the standard bearers there was an exception. No warhammers I think, the Konigsmarck troops from Poland did use axes though.

  3. But what about the double headed eagle on the leading cornet?

  4. What strikes me is the difference between the crowns over the monogram and those over the coat of arms; Bouttat depicts a (dutch) ducal crown over the monogram and a (dutch) margrave's crown over the coat of arms.

  5. Indeed, the text states that the attack is made by the dutch gurads, but the double eagle is obviously an Imperial one. Bouttats also "lended" from Romeyn de Hooghe's print on Naarden, it's not in this pic but on the right hand corner in the original print. Unfortunatly the only good source for Dutch colours and standards is "Les triomphes de Louis le Grand"..
