Состав маршалов, высших командиров Великой Армии Бонапарта, был неоднороден. Наполеон раздавал маршальские жезлы и представителям старой аристократии, и выходцам из буржуазного, крестьянского сословия. Главным требованием императора была безукоризненная исполнительность и инициатива. Свои колоссальные состояния маршалы Первой империи оплачивали кровью в прямом смысле на полях сражений.
