Davoust, marechal d'Empire' Portrait of Louis Nicolas Davout, Duke of Auerstaedt, Prince d'Eckmehl, (1770-1823). Davout was a Marshal of the Empire during the Napoleonic Era. His prodigious talent for war along with his reputation as a stern disciplinarian, earned him the title "The Iron Marshal". He is ranked along with Massena and Lannes as one of Napoleon's finest commanders. During his lifetime, Davout's name was commonly spelled Davoust, which is how it appears on the Arc de Triomphe.
