Hey, I have this suits of cards Happy

The drawings are by Auguste Racinet and were published in 1888 in Le Costume historique. They represent the state of the art at the time...

Off the top of my head, the particular one you are interested in is a Carolingian knight, but I'd have to check.

Regards,
