I'm seeking a list of Rabbis who received Smicha from R. Akiva Eger, both in Markisch Friedland and later in Posen.

Why do you want to know this? Is this JeLLy enough? – Double AA Sep 10 '13 at 16:20
@DoubleAA, it's a question of history of Judaism, not just of Jews, so is on-topic IMO. Jim Bennett, by "JeLLy", DoubleAA meant (roughly) "on-topic": see judaism.stackexchange.com/help/on-topic. Welcome to Mi Yodeya! I hope you stick around and post good questions and answers. – msh210 Sep 10 '13 at 17:07

I don't know if they received semicha per say from Rabbi Akiva Eiger, but Rabbi Eliyahu Gutmacher, Rabbi Zvi Hirsch Kallischer, and Rabbi Shlomo Eiger are known to be his foremost students.
