Colonels of Napoleon, 1804-1815 Annex I: Table by the Arms of Service Part I: The Line Infantry Regiments

By Eman Vovsi

The rank colonel, thought to imply aristocratic privilege, was suppressed by the Revolution and replaced with that of chef de brigade by decree of 21 February 1791; it was rehabilitated during Consulat on 24 September 1803 and maintained throughout the Empire.  Each of the units in the tables below represents a single regiment, commanded by colonel:

-          Infantry represents 135 regiments of the Line (A) and 35 that of the Light (B) units;

-          Cavalry consisted of regiments of the heavy cavalry (carabiniers and cuirassiers) as well as regiments of dragoons, light cavalry (chasseurs à cheval and hussars) and chevau-légers created by decree of 18 June 1811 and into lancers’ regiments of during the Restoration and the Hundred days (C);

-          Artillery regiments on foot or on horse (D), including those who exercised direct artillery functions as a superior commander in the rank of colonel;

-          Legion de la Vestula (E)

-          Majors of the Garde Imperiale (Old Guard) that were equivalent to the rank of the colonel of the Line (F);

-          Colonels-majors of the Garde d’Honneur created in 1813 (G)

-          Demi-brigades of veterans instituted by decree of 25 March 1800 and dissolved 10 June 1810 (H).

Not included into the following tables:

-          Colonels of the engineers who assumed functions of the directors of the fortifications or served elsewhere as an engineer’s commanders;

-          Colonels commandants d’armes;

-          Colonels attached and assigned to the corps of engineers-geographies;

-          Adjudant-commandants who replaced colonels during the combat missions, or employed at the General staff, military divisions, etc;

-          Gendarmerie and its legions created 31 July 1801;

-          Regiments and legions of non-line troops and auxiliary troops in the service of France, including allies, such as kingdoms of Italy, Naples, Grand-duchy of Berg, Saxe, Warsaw, etc.

-          Colonels and colonels en second[34] commanding of the various temporary formations;

-          Colonels of the Navy artillery;

-          Superior officers that were promoted to colonel’s rank during the First Restoration and served as such during the Hundred Days, except those who were confirmed in their grades by provisional government Commission.     Also, the tables below have list the names of the colonels who were killed or mortally wounded in major, and many small encounters during the campaigns of the Empire, while commanding this or that unit; their names emphasized in bold.  It is also necessary to note that certain number of colonels attained the rank of general of brigade and above; such names have the date of promotion into the first general’s rank in parenthesis, following immediately after the name.  Date of nomination to the colonel’s rank has month of promotion as a starting point.
