The Maison du Roi, or "House Guard" of the king of Galli, are a standing army of elite units. In times gone by they were heavy horse, but since The War of 99 Kings they are heavy arquebusiers. They are still considered to be gentlemen, and they dress accordingly, even at war. Indeed, the hardest part of forming the unit was not finding willing men, nor even those skilled in battle, but rather to convince them all to wear uniforms instead of dressing themselves.
