François Gérard's famous portrait of Marshal Michel Ney (17690815), in ceremonial uniform. He fought for Napoleon from begining to end: after his command of French rear-guard on the Retreat from Moscow in 1812 he was jokingly referred to as 'the last Frenchman on Russian soil. Although he persuaded the emperor to abdicate and accept his first exile in 1814 and prepared a force to stop Napoleon reaching Paris during the Hundred Days, Ney joined with Napoleon in 1815. At the Battle of Waterloo, seeing the day was lost, Ney led a final charge, shouting to his men 'Come see how a marshal of France dies!'. However he survived, only to be shot for treason, one of very few of Napoleon's generals not to be exonerated by the restored Bourbon monarchy.
