I've been trying to figure out what is written on the back of a frame.

Here is the topic in the Nap Section:


Jacob Liegl/Liegel

Klagenfurter Landwehr - Company 1

Hauptmann Infantry Regiment

König Wilhelm I Niederland

Thanks Hardy...

Barry, nice portrait of an interesting man.

Jacob Liegel born in Sankt Veit an der Glan, Kärnten, Austria

Baron von Kaisersteinischer Werksverweser (he was an administrator for the Baron Kaiserstein before he was given a commission)

Landwehr-Hauptmann Liegel commanded the first company of the I. Klagenfurter Landwehrbataillon in 1808 (the picture depicts him as such)

Then became Hauptmann of the Infanterie Regiment König-Wilhelm-der-Niederlande.

Hauptmann Liegel was wounded and captured in 1813, later (no date given) he died at the front near Udine of Dysenterie
