Biographical Essay (by Digby Smith)
Friedrich Heinrich Freiherr von Gottesheim was born in 1749. On 25 April 1798, he received his promotion to Major General and served initially as brigade commander in Erzherzog Carl's Army of the Lower Rhine. Later he was transferred to Italy to support the efforts to relieve Mantua. In 1799 Gottesheim served in Italy in FML Kaim's infantry division of Kray's army. This division was detached to the upper Etsch and the brigades of Elsnitz and Gottesheim were used to work on the defences of Pastrengo from mid-March. In early 1800 he commanded a brigade in Hohenzollern's division under Ott in north-western Italy. Gottesheim took part in the siege of Genoa and commanded the Avantgarde of FML Ott's Left Column at Marengo on 14 June. On 17 April 1801, he was promoted to Feldmarschalleutnant. For the 1805 campaign he commanded a mixed division in Schwarzenberg's Avantgarde. In January 1808 he was appointed proprietor of the Cuirassier Regiment N°6, but he died only three months later on 5 April.

Biographical Essay (by Digby Smith)
Johann Anton Freiherr von Graffen was promoted to Major General in March 1796. This year he served under FZM Baillet de Latour as commander of an infantry brigade in the Army of the Upper Rhine. He was then transferred to Italy. In September Graffen was in Vorarlberg. After Wurmser's defeat on 15 September at San Giorgio and Mantua, Graffen's command at Malborghetto, Pontafel and Tarvis numbered only 3,600 men. He took part in Alvincy's third attempt to relieve Mantua, and fought at the victory at Bassano over the French under Napoleon on 6 November. He retired on 21 October 1798 and died in 1807 in St. Pölten (Lower Austria).

Biographical Essay (by Digby Smith)
Philippe-Ferdinand de Hemricourt de Mozet de Pinchard, Comte de Grünne was born in Dresden (Saxony) on 15 May 1762. He joined the Austrian army in 1782 and fought in the war against the Turks in 1778/79. In 1794 Grünne was appointed Aide-de-Camp to Kaiser Franz. The following year he assumed the office of Adjutant-General to FZM Graf Clerfayt and afterwards to GdK Graf Wurmser. In 1797 he was promoted to Oberst. In 1799 he commanded a cavalry regiment and fought in northern Italy and Switzerland. On 30 September of that year his action secured the safe withdrawal of the Russian General Korsakov's force. On 6 March 1800 Grünne-Pinchard was promoted to Major General and defended Kempten in southwest Germany against superior French forces. He took part at the battle of Hohenlinden, commanding a cavalry brigade in Liechtenstein's division of the Reserve. In 1804 Erzherzog Carl elected Grünne to chief of his war ministry office, where he worked on the Archduke's army reforms and drafting new regulations for the cavalry.
He was promoted Feldmarschalleutnant on 22 January 1808 and resigned in 1809 after the end of the campaign, when Erzherzog Carl was forced to resign too. From that time on he served in the Archduke's household as Grand Master until the death of the imperial prince in 1847. In 1827 he was awarded the rank of General of Cavalry. Grünne died in Vienna on 26 January 1854.

Biographical Essay (by Digby Smith)
Albert Graf Gyulai von Máros-Németh und Nádaska was born in Ofen on 12 September 1766 as younger brother to Ignaz; his father was FML Samuel Graf Gyulai. He entered Austrian military service on 1 May 1784 as 2nd Lieutenant, Hussar Regiment "Kaiser" N°1. On 19 October 1787 he transferred as 1st Lieutenant to Infantry Regiment "Alvincy" N°19. On 14 December 1787 he transferred again as 2nd Rittmeister to "Szeckler" Hussar Regiment N°44 (N°11 from 1798). He fought in the war against the Turks in 1788/89 in FML Fabri's division on the borders of Transylvania. On 26 August 1788 Albert Gyulai fought in the clash at at the Törzburger pass where an Austrian force of 8 infantry companies, 1½ squadrons of dragoons and 1½ squadrons of hussars with 7 light guns were assaulted at dawn by 6,000 Turks advancing from Kimpolung and Oradje. The Austrians were thrown out of their redoubts initially, but Gyulai led his hussars in a counter-attack which recovered a lost gun, freed a company of infantry, held up the enemy for hours and enabled an orderly withdrawal to be made. On 1 February 1789, Gyulai was now captain of grenadiers in his father's Infantry Regiment N°32 in FM Loudon's army fighting the besieged Turks at Belgrade. On 30 September the outer suburbs were stormed. Gyulai (in the Grenadier Battalion "Kempf" in Oberst Baron von Werneck's 2nd Column) took part in the first assault, which was beaten back with heavy losses. Gyulai led a second attack which pushed the Turks back into the town and ensured the Austrian victory. The place surrendered on 8 October and Gyulai won the Military Maria Theresian Order (KC), on 21 December of that year.
In 1793 he was serving in the Austrian Netherlands where, on 18 March, he led a raid on the French outposts on the heights of Tirlemont. Seven guns and several hundred prisoners were taken and the French then abandoned the town. On 1 May, Gyulai was promoted Major in O'Donell's Freicorps. In June he served at the siege of Valenciennes and in August at that of Le Quesnoy. He also fought in GM Bellegarde's brigade at Castelet, Beauvais, St-Quentin and Cambrai. On 17 August 1793 FZM Fürst Hohenlohe was given the task of clearing the French out of the wood at Mormal. Bellegarde's brigade made a frontal assault on the enemy redoubts before the villages of La Haye de Gomegnies and Villereaux. The first attack failed. Gyulai led another assault with two companies of the Infantry Regiment "Beaulieu" N°31 and took the objective.
On 17 April 1794, Gyulai was in the Avantgarde of the Duke of York's allied army where he stormed and took the French outpost in the windmill of Vaux in the action of Catillon. On 22 May, in the battle of Tournay, Gyulai was in command of the left wing of the allied outposts at Bourghelles and Bachy. He drove the French back to Cysoing and ensured the allied victory later that day.
On 19 April 1797 he was serving with the O'Donell's Freikorps on the left wing of FML Baron von Werneck's division, in GM Graf de Briey's brigade between the Sieg and the Lahn rivers. He stormed and took the village of Leun, the Lahn bridge and Braunfels castle. In April 1797 he was promoted Oberstleutnant in his father's regiment. On 19 March 1798 Albert Graf Gyulai was transferred to Hussar Regiment "Kaiser" N°1 but only until 26 April of that year when he became Oberst and Commanding Officer of the newly-raised Hungarian Infantry Regiment N°48.
In 1799 his regiment served in FML Kaim's division in northern Italy, at Verona on the River Etsch. On 26 March the French launched a surprise attack, without giving notice of termination of the armistice. Gyulai's regiment held the villages of St Luzia and St Maximo and repelled all assaults. He was very distinguished in the fighting. On 5 April Gyulai was badly wounded in the head by a bullet leading the central assault column against Delmas' division in the victorious battle of Magnano. He was evacuated to Verona where the projectile was removed by trepanning. The same year he was appointed as a member of the Elisabeth Theresian Military Foundation. This was the first time that this membership had been awarded to a colonel in field service. The people of Verona made him an honorary citizen of their town.
On 15 July 1800 Gyulai retired due to his bad health and the effects of his wound. Nine days later he was promoted Major General. When the Hungarian Insurrection was raised later that year he was appointed Commanding General of the District of the Far Side of the Theiss River.
In 1803 he rejoined the active army and on 14 August 1808 was promoted Feldmarschalleutnant. For the 1809 campaign he took command of the VIII Corps in northern Italy from Chasteler under Erzherzog Johann. On 16 April he fought on the left wing of the Austrian victory at Fontana Fredda and was again in victorious action on 30 April at Castelcerino against GdB Jean-Joseph-Augustine Sorbier who was fatally wounded in this action. On 1 May, news reached Erzherzog Johann of the defeats suffered by his brother, Carl, in the Danube valley and he was ordered to withdraw up into Austria with VIII Corps. The IX Corps was to fall back east to cover Carniola and Croatia. Gyulai withdrew up the vally of the Fella River to Tarvis. On 14 May he discovered an enemy battalion bivouacked in the Wolfbach valley near Tarvis. He completely surprised them, took 9 officers and 183 men prisoner and scattered the rest. Two days later he was attacked in the Tarvis position but held fast. On 17 May, Prince Eugene attacked again; the heavily outnumbered Gyulai was forced back to Weissenfels. His two-day stand had enabled the magazines in his rear to be evacuated. He now withdrew along the valley of the Save River into Hungary and rejoined Erzherzog Johann at St Gotthardt on 2 June. He did not fight at the battle of Raab.
In 1810 he was appointed Proprietor of Infantry Regiment N°21 and retired in 1811. He was recalled in 1813 and was appointed GOC of the Reserve Corps at Krems on the Danube but saw no action. In 1815 he was again recalled to command a division but again saw no action. Albert Graf Gyulai died 1835 in Pest.

Biographical Essay (by Digby Smith)
Albert Graf Gyulai von Máros-Németh und Nádaska was born on 11 September 1763 in Hermannstadt, as son of FML Samuel Graf Gyulai. He entered Austrian military service in 1781 as Cadet in his father's regiment (IR N°32). He fought in the wars against the Turks 1787-90 during which he was promoted to Major in the 2nd Banal Grenz Infantry Regiment (1789). In January 1790, he was promoted to Oberstleutnant and commander of his own Freicorps. On 20 July 1790, he distinguished himself at the storm of Czettin.
At the beginning of the 1st Coalition War in 1792 he was not mobilised, so he went to Vienna to ask for a command at the front. The next year he was sent with his Frei-Corps to Wurmser's army on the upper Rhine. He was distinguished on 19 September at Bienwald and on 13 October at the storming of the Weissenburg lines. Here he commanded the advance guard of Hotze's brigade, crossed the River Lauter against stiff resistance, broke into the lines, took several guns and contributed greatly to the Austrian victory. In November 1793, he held the village of Merzweiler against heavy French assaults for three weeks. For this he was awarded the Knight's Cross of the Military Maria Theresian Order on 7 July 1794. In this year he was again on the upper Rhine.
On 8 April 1795 Gyulai was promoted to Oberst in the Infantry Regiment "Benjowsky" N°31 but stayed with his Freicorps; he was again distinguished at Kaiserslautern from 17-20 September.
In the 1796 campaign he again commanded his own Frei-Corps in Fröhlich's Allgäu flank corps of Baillet de Latour's Army of the Upper Rhine. In June 1796, he covered the retreat of the Swabian Circle Troops into the Kinzig valley in the area between Stillhofen and Bischofsheim. In this action Gyulai received contradictory orders from both General Latour and General Fürstenberg and was unable to fulfill them all. Erzherzog Carl then ordered him to act as communications link between his main body and General Fröhlich on the Rhine. In the subsequent withdrawal, Gyulai commanded Fröhlich's rearguard.
In late 1796, Ignaz Gyulai was sent to Italy to find out what Wurmser's situation was. He accomplished his mission very well. Gyulai should now by rights have taken command of Infantry Regiment N°31 but General Fröhlich blocked this move, saying that he was the only competent outpost commander that he had. On 22 September 1796, with 1,200 men, Gyulai held up 6,000 French troops at Memmingen for eight hours. The next year he received his promotion to Generalmajor.
In the 1799 campaign, Ignaz Graf Gyulai served in the army of Erzherzog Carl and was distinguished in the fighting at Ostrach and Stockach (21-26 March), where he ambushed a French force of 3 battalions and 4 squadrons at Altbreisach and pushed them back into the French bridgehead. The following year (1800), he was again on the upper Rhine, fighting against Moreau. After the actions at Engen and Mösskirch (3 May), he commanded the Austrian rearguard. On 24 May he ambushed the French (a Demi-Brigade and a Chasseur-a-Cheval regiment) at Günzburg and took 250 prisoners. On 11 June he mounted another ambush at Krumbach and took 8 officers and 148 men prisoner. On 11 October 1800, he was awarded the Commander's Cross of the MMTO and 18 days later promoted to Feldmarschalleutnant. On 3 December of that year, he fought in the battle of Hohenlinden. Gyulai's division was part of FZM Reisch's left wing column. He broke into GdD Antoine Richepanse's division, pushed part of it back to St Christophe and covered the allied retreat.
In 1805 Ignaz Gyulai fought in the Danube Valley campaign, commanding the grenadier reserve, under FML Werneck's overall command. At the end of that war he was present at Pressburg with Prince Johannes Liechtenstein to negotiate the peace treaty. In 1806 he was appointed Privy Councillor and Banus of Croatia, Dalmatia and Slovenia.
In 1809 he was Commanding General of the IX Corps in Italy; he covered Erzherzog Johann's retreat into Hungary and saved the army in the battle on the Piave River on 7-8 May. Subsequently, he fought in Krain and at Graz on 24-26 June.
In 1813, Count Gyulai was promoted to Feldzeugmeister and appointed Commander of the III Corps of the Army of Bohemia. He fought at Dresden on the left wing and was very distinguished. At Leipzig he was the link at Lindenau with Blücher's Prussians to the northeast. On 21 October, he blocked French attempts to seize the bridge over the River Ilm at Kösen, during their retreat from Leipzig. On 9 November, he took Hochheim, east of Mainz, then blockaded Kassel.
