Battle of Friedland (Napolean) is a European jacquard wall tapestry. It depicts the victory against Russia for Napoleon in the Napoleonic Wars (1807) that led to the Peace of Tilsit. Near Friedland in eastern Prussia (modern Pravdinsk, Russia), an isolated French corps, greatly outnumbered, held off Russian attacks for nine hours while Napoleon concentrated his forces. He then attacked with 65,000 men, pushing half the Russian army into the village of Friedland, where they were killed or captured. A Prussian ally withdrew his forces from Königsberg, which the French then occupied. This tapestry is inspired by the artwork of Emile Jean Horace Vernet (1789 - 1863).
