More information

Armand de Caulaincourt was born to a noble family in Caulaincourt, Aisne, in the French region of Picardie. He entered the army at the age of 15, without achieving a high degree of success.



In 1792 he was a captain, but he was thrown into prison—probably because he had rendered himself obnoxious to the democrats. He was freed, but on condition that he should serve as a simple grenadier. He did so for three years, when, through the intercession of General Hoche, he was restored to his former rank as captain. Yet even after ten years of service, his advancements were very slow.
