Abstract

The Tyrolean Rebellion of 1809 (German: Tiroler Volksaufstand) was a rebellion of peasants in the County of Tyrol led by Andreas Hofer against the occupation of their homeland by the French and Bavarian troops within the context of the War of the Fifth Coalition against Napoleon I. Eyck sketches the immediate origins of the conflict, the see-saw course of combat, and the actions of individual protagonists.
