Winner in Fleurus under the Revolution, Marshal Jourdan rallied General Bonaparte after 18 Brumaire. He was made Marshal in 1804. It was the end of his military career: appointed advisor to Joseph Bonaparte, King of Spain, he could not prevent the disaster in Vitoria in June 1813 and lost his title of Marshal of France. On his return to France, he joined the royalist camp in 1814. First away during the Hundred Days, he was appointed governor of Besançon by the Emperor. In 1830, three years before his death, he was to be governor again, this time of the Hospital des Invalides, according to the wishes of King Louis-Philippe.
