How to use Castiglione in a sentence
There used to be great books on the sorts of lives that should be emulated, by people like Plutarch and Castiglione.
Castiglione added to his laurels, for it was his handling of the artillery that enabled Augereau to win his great victory.
Though Castiglione thus brought him fresh honours, it nearly caused an estrangement between him and his chief.
From Castiglione onwards the soldiers of Augereau's division would do anything for their commander.
