 =====Notes==== =====Notes====
-Charles II began to raise an army at Bruges in Flanders in 1656, having signed a treaty to ally with Spain against France and Cromwellian England. Ormond led a regiment of exiled Irish Royalists, commanded in the field by Col. Richard Grace. These had previously been in Spanish employ, then French, and now re-joined the Spanish under Grace. In July 1658 the regiment fought at the Battle of the Dunes in Muskerry’s brigade, but the French and English Protectorate forces were victorious. ​+ 
 +The regiment'​s history is discussed in Firth, C. H. (1898), [[http://​archive.org/​stream/​transactions17royauoft#​page/​67/​mode/​1up|Royalist and Cromwellian Armies in Flanders, 1657-1662]],​ Transactions of the Royal Historical Society, pp. 67–119

In July 1658 the regiment fought at the Battle of the Dunes in Muskerry’s brigade, but the French and English Protectorate forces were victorious. Despite the defeat Ormond'​s regiment retired off the field in good order. They remained in Flanders until the end of 1661 when, reduced to only 80 men, they were probably incorporated into the other Irish regiments in Flanders
