The level of draftsmanship displayed in this drawing is quite superb.  Judging by the paper, it was likely done at the time of the great French masters such as Jacques-Louis David, Nicolas Poussin, and Jean-Auguste-Dominique Ingres.

 

I have no idea who created this drawing.  I have also been unable to identify the sitter, but he was apparently a French military officer.
