Marengo
Birth: unknown
Death: 1832

Napoleon's favorite horse. An Arabian horse obtained during the Egyptian campaign in 1799 after the Battle of Aboukir. Napoleon named the horse after a victory in Italy and rode it at the Battle of Austerlitz in 1805 and to Moscow in 1812. Captured after the Battle of Waterloo in 1815, it was taken to England and put out to stud. After its death in 1832, the skeleton was articulated by Surgeon Wilmott of the London Hospital and presented to the Royal United Services Museum, now the National Army Museum. Two of the hooves were made in to snuf boxes.
