Some time ago I was asked to explain the name's origin of the "AVENUE DES CROATES" in France. The first answer to it I've found in a book titled: "CROATS - WARRIORS' PICTURES FROM THE PAST" by Grbasici, Mazuran, Radilovic, Trnski and Vukic published in Zagreb 1993. My translation from there is as follows:By 1667 many Croatian soldiers were still on duty in France and the French command formed a hussar regiment for them. The regiment got that honorable name of Royal Cravattes.
