Granatieri, 1° Reggimento Fanteria di Linea
Grenadiers, 1st Line Infantry Regiment
From the Otto Manuscript

Officer Grenadier

Each line infantry regiment had an elite company of Granatieri (Grenadiers) formed of the biggest, strongest and/or most experienced soldiers in the battalion. The bearskin bonnets that distinguish these individuals would often be replaced by shakos or bicornes when in the field.

The bearkin plates and officer distinctions appear painted gold here, but other sources suggest they should be silver. Otherwise these plates hold no surprises, being similar to their French counterparts but with green coats not blue.

The Otto manuscript appears to have been painted in the summer of 1807, possibly by the German artist Carl Wilhelm Kolbe but more probably by an unknown French artist. It contains over a hundred figures, mostly of French subjects but with a small contingent of Italians.
