Michel Ney, also referred to as Marshal Ney was arguably the most popular of the 18 men originally conferred with the rank of Marshall by Napoleon I.
What was Michel Ney known for?
He commanded forces of the French military in the French Revolutionary Wars and the Napoleonic Wars. In spite of pledging his allegiance to Louis XVIII following Napoleon’s abdication and exile, he actually supported the latter when he came out of exile in his efforts during the infamous Hundred Days. Unfortunately, they were defeated by the armies of the Seventh Coalition in the Battle of Waterloo and Napoleon was dethroned and exiled once again.
His father, Pierre Ney was a cooper and a Seven Years’ War veteran. His mother’s name was Marguerite Grevelinger. He was married to Aglaé Louis, with whom he had four children.
After being defeated in the Battle of Waterloo, he was arrested in August 1815. He was made to stand trial for treason before the Chamber of Peers in December of the same year. The votes went against his favor and he was executed by firing squad on December 7, 1815.
