Porcelain figure of Marshal Bernadot

Author: Unknown artist

Porcelain, height 30 cm, sculptor-modeller Reinhold Braunschmidt.

Participation in hostilities revealed one important feature of Bernadotte the commander: he does not throw soldiers into battle without any meaning; he is the commander guarding the soldiers. Yes, and Bernadot himself is not too eager to rush into the implementation of operations, if not sure of the success of the planned business. Perhaps it is this trait, combined with the preservation of soldiers' lives, that contributes to a special attitude towards him from ordinary soldiers.

On February 18, 1818, he ascended the Swedish throne under the name of Karl XIV Johan and ruled Sweden until March 8, 1844.
