Teniente General: Lieutenant General

The coat is the regulation daily uniform of 1805: dark blue with gold braid trim. Note the two rows of gold braid on the cuffs, which are the indicater of his rank. This usually includes a waist sash, a garment until then unknown in the spanish military, but today is very distinctive of generalship.
