4. found an earlier version labelled "Dromadaire portant un timbalier, 1557 Chameau portant le trsor de l'empereur de Turquie"

12. I think it resembles an armenian priest with that hooded cloak.

I'm guessing #1 is somewhere from Eastern Europe, Albania or Bulgaria, maybe Hungary.

Probably. They look like the Stradioti. Which were a mix of Greco-Albanian-Serbo cavalry. They were famous around the time of growth of the Ottoman Empire and served in many western armies and Scanderbeg.

Here is my topic on them;
