Portrait of Colonel A.S. Lvov of the Tiraspol Mounted Chasseur Regiment

Russia, 1831-1832

Alexander Sergeyevich Lvov (1791–?) joined the Tiraspol Mounted Chasseur Regiment as an ensign in 1807. He participated in the campaigns against the Turks in 1810–11 and against Polish and Saxon forces in 1812, in operations near Dresden and in the “Battle of the Nations” at Leipzig in 1813. In 1826, by then a major, he married Sophia Vikulina, the daughter of a collegiate assessor, and the following year submitted his resignation for domestic reasons. After two years living in the Zadonsk district of Voronezh province, he requested a return to his old regiment, where he was accepted on 7 June 1830. In 1831 he was promoted to lieutenant colonel and later in the year to colonel. He participated in the Polish campaign of 1831.
