Bataille D'Ocana, Livrée le 19 Novembre 1809.
Roéhn del. Couche fils aqua forti. Pigeot sculp.t.
[n.d., c.1840.]
Hand coloured engraving. Sheet size: 305 x 465mm (12 x 18¼"). Trimmed inside plate at top and bottom.
During the War of Independence, the battle of Ocaña, currently in the province of Toledo, Spain, was fought on 19 November 1809 and resulted in a French victory under the command of Marshal Soult against the Spanish General Juan Carlos de Aréizaga. It was the biggest defeat of the Spanish army, who lost nearly 19,000 men despite being superior in number to their French counterparts, and reinforced the Spanish throne of Joseph Bonaparte (1768 - 1844), the elder brother of Napoleon Bonaparte who had declared him King of Spain a year prior to the battle. In this scene, French troops attack the Spanish, who can be seen fleeing great numbers in the distance to the left.
