Queen of France Sainte Bathilde statue within Luxembourg Gardens
In the first image of this marble statue depicting Sainte Bathilde, you can see the artist has presented this queen and saint to be beautiful, intelligent and modest, which is according to the writings in her Vita, or Hagiography, which is basically a biography written about a person, especially that of a saint.

And in this next photograph you can see the full marble statue placed on top of the stone pedestal, which in total is 3.8 metres in height, and this was commissioned by King Louis Philippe under the Ministerial Order of December 1845, in which he chose specific French queens and saints to be placed within the Jardin du Luxembourg.
Sainte Bathilde statue by artist Victor Therasse
Here is another front view showing the marble statue of Sainte Bathilde, which was produced by the artist and sculptor Victor Therasse, and although it was commissioned in 1845, it was not actually completed until the January of 1848 and the same year it was put on display within the Paris Salon before being located in its final position within the Luxembourg Gardens.
Side view of the Sainte Bathilde statue in Luxembourg Gardens
In this high definition photo it shows the side view of the marble statue of Sainte Bathilde, who was born around 626 or 627 in England, yet was sold into slavery as a young woman, however, things changed dramatically when she ended up at the court of France and married Clovis II, becoming a queen, as Clovis was the Merovingian King of Burgundy and Neustria, which was a part of France at the time.
Plaque on the base of Sainte Bathilde statue
This is a close up photo we took of the plaque located on the base of the statue, and as you can tell, there is no year of birth showing, as there is no precise record as to when Bathilde was born, yet records state she past away in the January of 680, yet her name is also often spelt Saint Balthild, and sometimes is referred to as Bathilda.
1848 marble statue of Sainte Bathilde
Now this statue can be found in the northeast side of the garden in front of Palais du Luxembourg, and although the marble statue by Victor Therasse with its plaque depicts this woman as Sainte Bathilde, during her life she was a Reine de France, or Queen of France, and she was not actually canonised as a saint until around 200 years later by Pope Nicholas I.
