He took part in the covering force of the siege of Genoa and then commanded an infantry brigade in FML Vogelsang's division of FML Ott's Left Column at Marengo on 14 June. In the campaign of 1805 GM Ulm comanded an infantry brigade in Hessen-Homburg's division in Kolowrat's main body. On 1 September 1807, he was promoted to FML.
