Sainte Clotilde Statue Jardin Du Luxembourg

This first HD photo shows the marble statue of Sainte Clotilde, or Saint Clotilda in English, which stands at a height of 2.3 metres, positioned on a stone base, and this was one of the series of statues chosen by King Louis PHilippe I.

So this statue of Saint Clotilda is part of the series called the Reines de France et Femmes Illustres, which in English translates to Queens of France and Famous Women, and this was commissioned from the artist for 12,000 French Francs under a Ministerial Order dated 4th April 1843.

Now as you can tell from this photograph, after the marble statue was completed by Jean Baptiste Klagmann on 15th December 1847, it was placed on the western terrace of the Luxembourg Gardens along with other statues in the same series by different artists.

Yet this next image shows a close up of the plaque that can be found on the base of the statue of Sainte Clotilde, and as you can tell, it shows no year of birth as there is no exact record, although it was around the 470s, yet her year of death was recorded as 545.

And Saint Clotilda married Clovis I, who became King of the Francs, which meant that Clotilda became a Queen of France, and she is most famous for being the person that converted Clovis to the Roman Catholic religion of Christianity and they built a church in Paris, which is where Clovis was buried.

But after his death, Sainte Clotilde went to Tours and remained at an abbey there, which is where she passed away many years later, however, she was buried at her husbands side in Paris, and venerated by the church, she was to be canonised becoming a Saint shortly after.
