More information

Born at Obernai in the French province of Alsace, Beker was serving as a dragoon in the royal army at the beginning of the French Revolution. During the War of the First Coalition he earned rapid promotion to adjutant general while fighting as a dragoon, chasseur, and hussar. He commanded a brigade in 1795 and served as chief of staff of the Army of Sambre-et-Meuse and the Army of Santo Domingo.

Soon after Marengo, Beker married the deceased Desaix's older sister Antoinette Desaix (1764–1816). He was elevated to the rank of general of brigade on 2 January 1801.
