A rare antique map of the Aragon region, once owned by Honoré Charles Michel Joseph Reille Marshal of France, who campaigned in the area during the Peninsula War.

Reille (1775-1860), was an extremely important figure in Napoleon Bonaparte's army: he was Commander of the Army of Portugal at Vitoria during the Peninsula War, and commanded the II Corp (25,000 men) at Waterloo. He was later made a Maréchal of France and is buried in Pére Lachaise cemetary in Paris in the tomb of his father-in-law, Maréchal Messéna.
