HD photographs of Marie Queen of Scots statue inside Jardin du Luxembourg - Page 453

We were again within the Jardin du Luxembourg admiring some of the statues in this free public garden that has become a popular tourist attraction, and sometimes you will see some unusual things, like we captured within these high definition photos showing the statue of Marie Stuart, Mary Queen of Scots.

Marie Queen of Scots statue by artist J Feuchere
Now this marble statue of Marie Stuart, who is also known as Mary Queen of Scots was one of the Reines de France et Femmes Illustres that King Louis Philippe chose to be represented within the Luxembourg Gardens.

And this was commissioned for the sum of 12,000 French Francs via a ministerial order dated 31st October 1843, and it was down to the artist Jean-Jacques Feuchere to sculpt this elegant marble statue, which is a height of 1.95 metres not including the stone base.

It was finished on 26th November 1846 and placed on the eastern side of the Jardin du Luxembourg on the terrace overlooking the central formal garden area, which is to the right hand side as you are looking towards the Palais du Luxembourg.

So this photo gives you an idea as to the total height of this statue of Marie Stuart, which was being adorned by a temporary cloak at the time, which is a shame, because we could not get to see the true beauty of this elegant marble statue.

And although Marie Stuart is depicted as one of the series of the Queens of France and Famous Women, she was actually born in Scotland in 1542, although her mother was French, and she became Queen of Scotland only days after her birth.

Originally, it was through a treaty she was meant to marry Prince Edward of England in the hopes that this would help relations between England and Scotland, but through her regents this was changed and she was sent to France to be educated and eventually to marry the Dauphin Francis, who became King Francis II and hence she became Queen Consort of France.

But when King Francis II died, Mary returned to Scotland, and things went from bad to worse, with her next husband being murdered and then remarrying, yet having to flee after abdicating from the throne, Marie Stuart went to England, feeling she would be safe.

However, this was not the case and unfortunately was imprisoned for over eighteen years in different castles, and put on trial for treason against Queen Elizabeth I of England, she was later beheaded on 8th February 1587.
