Notes[edit]

  1. ^ "Pirch I": the use of Roman numerals being used in Prussian service to distinguish officers of the same name, in this case from his brother, seven years his junior, Otto Karl Lorenz von Pirch ("Pirch II"). Because of this usage in the Prussian service, and because the two fought in the Waterloo Campaign, many English language sources use the same method to distinguish the two.
