Michel Ney (10 January 1769 - 16 August 1840) was a French soldier and military commander during the French Revolutionary Wars, First Great European War and the Prussian Expansion War. He was one of the original 18 Marshals of France created by Napoleon I. He was known as Le Rougeaud ("red faced" or "ruddy") by his men and nicknamed le Brave des Braves ("the bravest of the brave") by Napoleon I. He was also an important advisor to Napoleon II after the death of his father and his ascension to the throne.
