Napoleon, from the Tuileries to St. Helena

Excerpt from Napoleon, From the Tuileries to St. Helena: Personal Recollections of the Emperor's Second Mameluke and Valet Louis E tienne St. Denis (Known as Ali) There is nothing in the English stable which quite corresponds to the office of piqueur. He had all sorts of functions. Among other things he was a huntsman, also an outrider who preceded his master to order relays of post horses; he was an overseer of stables, and it was his duty to take large convoys of post horses, carriage horses, draft horses, or remounts from place to place. As horses supplied the only means of locomotion in the armies of that day, except the men's feet, great numbers of them were required, and the piqueur's duties involved heavy responsibility.
