The Battle of Raab was fought on 14 June 1809 during the Napoleonic Wars, between Franco-Italian forces and Austrian-Hungarian forces. The battle was fought near Raab in Hungary and ended in a Franco-Italian victory. The victory prevented Archduke John from bringing any significant force to the Battle of Wagram, while Prince Eugene’s force was able to link up with Napoleon at Vienna in time to fight at Wagram. Napoleon referred to the battle as “a granddaughter of Marengo and Friedland” [ Chandler, D. p.355]
