Sainte Clotilde Statue Eglise Saint-Germain l'Auxerrois

This first HD photo shows the statue of Sainte Clotilde located within a niche on the facade of the Eglise Saint-Germain l'Auxerrois, which was formerly the royal church for those residing at the Palais du Louvre, and is located opposite the Cour Carree at the Place du Louvre, in the 1st Arrondissement of Paris.

Queen Of France Statue Sainte Clotilde By Louis Desprez

Although the Eglise Saint-Germain l'Auxerrois dates back to the 12th century, there is not much remaining from this time, and after the French Revolution virtually all of its statues had been destroyed, so when Paris was being renovated, numerous French sculptors were employed to help restore many different historical buildings.

So the close up of the statue depicting Sainte Clotilde you can see here was sculpted in 1841 by Louis Desprez, who also worked on other statues for this church, along with different embellishments and decorations for other churches in Paris, and he was awarded the Legion of Honour for his work in 1851.

Name Inscription On Sainte Clotilde Statue

But this last photograph shows a close up of the name inscribed underneath the statue, and although her name can be spelt Clotilde, sometimes it is spelt Saint Clothilde or even Clotilda, plus you can see she was classed as a Queen of France, as she was married to King Clovis I.

And Saint Clotilde is famous for converting Clovis to the Roman Catholic religion plus later in her life she was known for her alms giving and the building of moansteries and churches prior to passing away in around 544 and was buiried at the Abbey of Saint Genevieve in Paris next to her husband.
