Napoleon Bonaparte: I commanded and won the Battle of Castiglione here in 1796, against opposing general of the Austrian forces, Dagobert Sigmund von Wurmser. I had an overwhelming victory, and this became one of my most famous battles. After the victory, I returned to the long Siege of Mantua to provide extra help to my troops fighting there, now even more determined to win the city.
