Quick question re the Austrian organisations in 1813. Under normal circumstances would Austrian and Hungarian Battalions find themselves in the same Brigades? Wanting to know if I should mix them on my Boucher Brigade bases.

ASAIK, brigades tended to be either all-German or all-Hungarian.

It wasn't the ideal, which tended overwhelmingly to pair off German or Hungarian units, but it happened on occasion. At the end of the day, an infantry regiment was an infantry regiment, no matter what colour the trousers.

Jellacic's force sent to Munich in 1809 had IR32 and IR45 in one brigade. IR27 & IR61 were also brigaded together throughout the Italian campaign.

In the 1813-14 campaign, there's a couple of examples in the field army in Italy.
Brigades established for a specific purpose ie blockading a fortress drew their battalions from just about anywhere.
