A DNA analysis has confirmed the identity of a mysterious one-legged skeleton discovered beneath a dance floor in Russia earlier this year.
As suspected, the skeleton is French general Charles-Etienne Gudin dela Sablonniere, who was struck by a cannonball during Napoleons ill-fated invasion of Russia in 1812.
Historian and former soldier Pierre Malinowski led French and Russian archaeologists in the search of the generals remains, an effort that is reportedly supported by the Kremlin.
MYSTERIOUS ONE-LEGGED SKELETON DISCOVERED IN RUSSIA MAY BE NAPOLEONS FAVORITE GENERAL
Malinowski told France Bleu that DNA from the skeletonmatches DNA taken from the remains of Gudins brother and mother. DNA is 100 percent, he said. There is no doubt.
A classmate of Napoleon from military school, Gudin is described as a favorite of the French Emperor. Gudin was critically injured during the Battle of Valutino near Smolensk on Aug. 19, 1812, according to AFP and France 24. The leg of the 44-year-old general was amputated but his wound became gangrenous and he died three days later.
The remains were discovered in July, Reuters reported earlier this year, noting that they were found beneath an outdoor dance floor in a Smolensk park.
GRISLY AMPUTATED LIMBS, FRENCH HOWITZER SHELL, DISCOVERED AT BATTLE OF WATERLOO SITE
After his death, French troops cut Gudins heart from his body and brought it back to France, placing it in a chapel at Paris famous Pere Lachaise cemetery, according to Napoleon-monuments.eu. The generals name is also inscribed on the Arc de Triomphe.
Napoleons gigantic Grande Armee began its invasion of Russia on June 24, 1812. Estimates of the armys size range from 450,000 to 650,000 troops, according to History.com. The campaign quickly degenerated into a military disaster as retreating Russian forces employed a scorched earth policy that denied food and shelter to the invading army.
When Napoleon reached Moscow in September, the city, like others in his path, had already been set ablaze and the French army was forced to retreat as winter neared. Ravaged by battle, starvation, disease and the devastating Russian winter, there were only around 100,000 soldiers in Napoleons army when it left Russia in December 1812.

One of the key figures in European history, Napoleon remains a source of fascination. Last year, an extremely rare bicorne, or two-pointed hat, that was worn by the French leader at theBattle of Waterloowas sold at auctionin France for 5,000.
Earlier this year, buttons from uniforms worn by soldiers in Napoleons army recently uncovered in Lithuania.
The discoveries were made during an excavation at the site of the Great Synagogue of Vilna (Vilnius), which was razed during the Nazi occupation of Lithuania in World War II.
