Le général Daumesnil

Le général Daumesnil

????- Pierre Daumesnil - ????

Après la bataille de Paris fin mars 1814, le général Daumesnil, ancien commandant des “Chasseurs à cheval de la Garde”, gouverneur du Château de Vincennes depuis 1812, est sommé de livrer le fort aux alliés austro-russo-prussiens.

Cerné de toutes parts, Daumesnil répondit non sans humour : 

« Quand vous me rendrez ma jambe, je vous rendrai ma place ! »* (????)

Avec moins de 200 hommes, le général refusa de se rendre, insensible aux pressions et aux tentatives de corruption, bravant le siège du fort durant plus de cinq mois. Il finit par capituler sur ordre de Louis XVIII, mais sortit de la forteresse en brandissant le drapeau tricolore. ????????

(Huile sur toile de Gaston Mélingue, 1882, Paris)

*Daumesnil perdit sa jambe gauche après avoir été blessé lors d’une charge de cavalerie à Wagram en 1809. Amputé deux fois il eu la chance, plutôt rare à l’époque, de survivre à son intervention “chirurgicale”.
