Friedrich Hohenloe

Prussian General

William HullComing from a noble family in Wurrtemberg, Friedrich Hohenloe was in his early 20s when he joined the Prussian army.

At the outbreak of the Revolutionary Wars he was sent against France and won at Kaiserslautern, but marred that success by being forced out of the Rhine lands by General Hoche.

In 1806, the 60-year-old Hohenloe again took up arms against France, but ran into Napoleon Bonaparte at Jena and - vastly outnumbered - was badly defeated.

He managed to rescue remnants of his army and withdrew, but was finally forced to surrender two weeks later.

Hohenloe spent two years as a prisoner of war and when he returned to Prussia decided to retire.
