The Uniforms of the Saxon Army in 1811

This is a series of prints on the Saxon Army, published by Napoleon On-line. It was originally published in 1810 with the title “Abbildung der neu organisirten Königlich-Sächsischen Armee in kolorirten Truppen auf 20 Blättern dargestellt” These illustrations represents the new uniforms of the Saxonian army that were being issued beginning in 1810.

Christoph Bommer is the probable artist, as the second plates shows a "C.B." and the plates of this Saxon series are similar to other Bommer plates. More info on Bommer can be found in Napoleon's Last Grande Armée written by Alfred Umhey.

These drawings originally appeared on line in German by our partner, Napoleon Online and are used with permission of the Sächsischen Landes- und Universitätsbibliothek. Please note that Markus Stein holds the copyright on all of these images.
