Barthélemy Catherine Joubert (1769-1799), acclaimed here as 'amongst the heroes who have contributed the most to the prodigious triumphs of our armies'. He joined the royal French army in 1784 and rose rapidly to the rank of general uring the French Revolutionary Wars. Napoleon recognised his talents and gave him increased responsibilities. He was later killed whilst commanding the French army at the Battle of Novi in 1799.
