The famous war horse of Napoleon I of France
Napoleon’s favorite mount, Marengo, was thoroughly trained for battle with guns fired close to his head, the sound of unsheathed swords and bayonets, the further distraction of waving flags, pounding drums and blaring trumpets. Aggressive dogs were often driven back and forth between his legs in order to train Marengo for battle under any conditions.
Marengo carried the Emperor Napoleon safely through the epic battles of Austerlitz, the Battle of Jena-Auerstedt, the Battle of Wagram and was captured in 1815 at the Battle of Waterloo.
Wounded eight times during his career, Marengo eventually died at the old age of 38. His skeleton has been preserved and is now on display at the National Army Museum in Chelse, London.
