    Russians - I love the rich green of the coats and how it contrasted with the white straps.

      It's definitely Murat, Poniatowski had a moustache.

        Maybe Murat only put czapka. His "free style" in uniform terms was well known.
        Here is Poniatowski:


        - Your Highness, the enemy is so numerous... they outnumber your army.
        - My friend, first I beat 'em then I'll count 'em
        (Polish King Jan III Sobieski during his campaigns)

          Oooh, all those pretty uniforms!

          I like those of Brunswick. All black with a skull.
