Louis-Nicolas Davout (1770-1823), Duke of Auerstedt and a marshal of the French Empire during the Napoleonic Wars (1803-1815). Nicknamed the "Iron Marshal" for the strict discipline he imposed on his Corps, Davout never lost a battle and is often regarded as one of the best – if not the best – of Napoleon's commanders. Oil on canvas portrait painting by Tito Marzocchi de Belluci after an original by Claude Gautherot, c. 1854.
