Abstract

RIBEIRO, José Iran. NOTES ON NAPOLEONIC MILITARY OFFICERS IN THE EMPIRE OF BRAZIL. Almanack [online]. 2019, n.23, pp.93-106.  Epub Dec 13, 2019. ISSN 2236-4633.  http://dx.doi.org/10.1590/2236-463320192305.

This article sets out to discuss the presence of French military officers who resided and worked in Brazil during the first half of the nineteenth century. According to Patrick Puigmal, many of them were incorporated into various armies throughout Spanish America. They even participated in wars fought by troops involved in independence struggles and, subsequently, in constructing republics which resulted from said processes. Their presence was notorious in Brazil. Even though they may have had important roles, existing research does not evidence memorable trajectories, neither in military life nor in Brazilian politics.

Keywords : French officers; Imperial Brazilian Army; Empire of Brazil.
