A super hand coloured Engraved Print dating to around 1850 of The Battle of Ratisbon. The artist is Jean Alphonse Roehn (French, 1799-1864). In excellent condition with vivid colour the print in it's frame measures 20 1/2" x 16". Also called the Battle of Regensburg, it was fought on the 23 April 1809, during the Napoleonic Wars, between the army of the First French Empire, led by Napoleon I, and that of the Austrian Empire, led by Archduke Charles. Scene of the last engagement of the Bavaria phase of the campaign of 1809, the brief defense of the city and installation of a pontoon bridge to the east enabled the retreating Austrian army to escape into Bohemia. During the assault, Marshal Jean Lannes led his troops up ladders onto the walls, and Napoleon was wounded in his ankle by a small artillery round. The shot had been fired at great distance and did not severely hurt the Emperor, but caused a contusion. Napoleon can be seen in the Engraving in the green frock coat sitting on the ground having his ankle attended to and surrounded by his Officers. Great piece for collectors of Militaria and Napoleonic War pieces.
