ECKMUHL, or EGGMVRL, a village of Germany, in the kingdom of Bavaria, on the Grosse Laaber, 13 M. S.E. of Regensburg by the railway to Munich. It is famous as the scene of a battle fought here on the 22nd of April 18og, between the French, Bavarians and Wurttembergers under Napoleon, and the Austrians under the Archduke Charles, which resulted in the defeat of the latter. Napoleon, in recognition of Marshal Davout's great share in the victory, conferred on him the title of prince of Eckmuhl. For an account of this action and those of Abensberg and Landshut see NAPOLEONIC CAMPAIGNS.
