In this military portrait, the sitter is shown in uniform of a captain of 2nd Cuirassier Regiment of French "garde royale" corresponding to the regulation of the years 1824-1830 (see our image nr.6).
We have consulted the French standard research source - "Almanach Royal" or - to be more precise - its issues for corresponding period (each issue reflects the state of affairs of the midterm of preceding year), and in annual officer lists of the 2nd Cuirassier Regiment we have found only one captain in possession of Officer Cross (rosette on ribbon!) of the Legion of Honor and no other awards. His name was De Montluc (first name remains unknown) and he served in 2nd Cuirassiers as a "capitaine en second" from 21st August 1825 untill July Revolution of 1830. Unfortunately no other information about this man was to find on Web
