In April of 1814 Marshal Augereau fled from his post the Army of Lyons to Valance. He learned of Napoleon's abdication and denounced him in favor of Louis XVIII. However learning of Napoleon's return switched again in favor of the emperor. Napoleon ignored Augereau and on April 10, 1815 was struck from the list of marshals.
