The battle took place during the struggle for the unification of Italy, on June 4, 1859, at Magenta near Milan, and saw a victory for a joint Franco-Sardinian army, commanded by Napoleon III, over an Austrian army led by Count Franz Gyulai.
The war continued—although with Emperor Francis Joseph I leading the Austrians rather than Gyulai—until the Austrians were again defeated at the Battle of Solferino on June 24, 1859.
