The so called Squadrone Volante was the seventeenth century independent and liberal cardinal movement within the Catholic Church which also was known as the Flying Squad. The Squad, protected by Christina of Sweden and led by Cardinal Decio Azzolino, was highly involved in European politics in the second half of the century. The election of Pope Clement IX seems to have been mastered by the Squad.
