Marengo gives its name to one of the most famous horses in history. Napoleon himself baptised it and used it as one of his favourite horses, it was captured by British troops and its remains are on display in the National Museum of the Royal Navy at Chelsea, London...There are historians who say that it came from a troop of Andalusian horses gifted to Napoleon by Carlos IV.
Marengo refers to the name of a celebrated battle between Austrians and French in Piedmont, in the north of what is now Italy. Formerly, it referred to the manner of fricasseeing a bird, slow roasting it, frying it in oil with mushrooms and truffles. Typical among hunters and people in the countryside.
