            Belgian lancers

            Not Belgian Lancers, but Duchy of Cleves-Berg, Confederation of the Rhine.

            In 1805, Bavaria released the Duchy of Berg to France and was rewarded with the counties of Bayreuth and Ansbach. The Duchy was amalgamated with former Prussian lands and territories conceded by neighboring States and the throne of the new Grand Duchy was given to Marshal Murat on 15 March 1806.
            The Duchy suffered several losses (1810) or gains (1806, 1808, 1811) of provinces and during this time was divided in four departments, Rhine (partially ceded to France in 1810), Sieg, Ruhr and Ems (ceded to France in 1810), with capital in Düsseldorf.
            On 15 July 1808 Murat became King of Naples and the vacant throne was taken by the Emperor Napoleon himself who gave it in turn to the elder son of the King of Holland, Prince Louis Napoleon, on 3 March 1809. The new Grand Duke being only four years old, the Emperor became Regent of the Duchy.
            Berg armed forces took part to the campaign of Prussia in 1807, Spain between 1808 and 1813, Austria in 1809, Russia in 1812 and Germany in 1813.
            In 1813, Berg was invaded by the Allies. Prussian territories reverted to their former ruler. The remaining lands were administrated by the Russians and awarded to Prussia in 1815.
