  • The Battle of Brienne (29 January 1814) saw an Imperial French army led by Emperor Napoleon I attack Prussian and Russian forces commanded by Prussian Field Marshal Gebhard Leberecht von Blücher. After heavy fighting that went on into the night, the French seized the château, nearly capturing Blücher. However, the French were unable to dislodge the Russians from the town of Brienne-le-Château. Very early the next morning, Blücher's troops quietly abandoned the town and retreated to the south, conceding the field to the French.At Brienne, Napoleon made his first appearance on a battlefield in 1814. By late January, two Allied armies had steadily overrun eastern France, pushing back their badly outnumbered opponents. The French emperor hoped to cripple Blücher's army before it could join the main Allied army under Austrian Field Marshal Karl Philipp, Prince of Schwarzenberg. In the event, the two Allied armies combined their forces and attacked Napoleon a few days later in the Battle of La Rothière. (en)
