Queen of France statue Berthe by Eugene Oudine
In this first image you can see the statue called Berthe, which was sculpted in marble by Eugene Andre Oudine to represent the Queen of France called Bertrade de Laon, or Bertrada of Laon in English, who was born roughly in the 720s.

And located in the Luxembourg gardens in the area dedicated to Queens of France and Famous Females, if you are looking towards the basin or large pond and the Palais du Luxembourg, then this statue of Berthe is positioned second from the top on the right hand side.

Here is a photo showing the top part of the marble statue of Bertrada of Laon, which was sculpted by the French artist Eugene Andre Oudine, who was commissioned for numerous monumental sculptures and busts plus he was an engraver and produced medals over his extensive and impressive career.

Now this is an even closer HD photo showing the small statue that this first Carolingian Queen of the Franks is holding in her hand, and she was also the Mother of Charles the Great, known as Charlemaine, or Charlemagne in French, and this was commissioned by King Louis Philippe I in the March of 1846.

And this is another close up photograph, this time showing the plaque on the pedestal or base of the statue, and as you can tell, there is no actually year of birth, as this has never been determined exactly, yet Bertrade de Laon passed away in the July of 783 and her tomb rests within the Saint-Denis Basilica on the outskirts of Paris.

So, as you can tell from this high definition photo, this marble statue, which stands at a height of 2.3 metres, is positioned on a stone pedestal, and as we previously mentioned this was commissioned by King Louis Philippe I back in 1846, which was for a sum of 12,000 French Francs, yet it was not completed until June 1848 when it was put on display within a Salon prior to being installed within the Jardin du Luxembourg.

And in this last image of the statue depicting Bertrade de Laon by French sculptor Eugene Andre Oudine, you will discover that this was one of several Reines de France et Femmes Illustres chosen by King Louis Philippe to be sculpted and put on display within the former royal garden of Marie de Medici, that is now home to the French Senate.
