        they are Napoleonic/Revolutionary pictures. strelets were used from the 1600-early 1800 and the swedish musketeers obviously look like Napoleonic

              For your information:
              Streltsy were the units of Russian guardsmen [Strelets - literally "shooter"; often translated as "musketeer," but more precisely "harquebusier"]. Established in the middle of the 16th century, they formed the bulk of the Russian army for about 100 years. Providing the Tsar's bodyguard, and, at the end of the 17th century, they exercised considerable political influence. In 1698 in Tsar Peter's absence was the most dangerous time. Four Strelets' regiments had moved from Polish boundaries to Moscow, but were met at New Jerusalem by two Guards and Butyrsky regiments. The onslaught of forces devoted to Peter made the strelets surrender. After the investigation, 130 Strelets were hanged, 140 were lashed with a whip and the others were exiled. Peter, who urgently returned from abroad, demanded re-investigation of the Strelets' case. According to his order, more than a thousand of strelets were returned from exile and were executed in public, with Peter himself performing as one of the executioners. The rest were dispersed among regular army units and the streletsy ceased to exist.
