Jean Victor Moreau, French Revolutionary soldier. Moreau (1761-1813) supported Napoleon's coup d'etat in 1799 and was subsequently given command of the Army of the Rhine. Napoleon believed Moreau was involved in a conspiracy against his regime however, and banished him from France. After a decade in exile in Spain and then America, Moreau entered the service of the Russians after the destruction of Napoleon's Grande Armee on the retreat from Moscow in 1812. He was fatally wounded at Dresden in 1813.
