Equestrian Statue Of King Henri IV By Francois-Frederic Lemot

This first HD photo shows a bronze equestrian statue of King Henri IV, which was originally commissioned by Queen Marie de Medici after her husband had been assassinated, and this was put in place in 1614 within the Place Pont Neuf, which is where the bridge named the Pont Neuf meets on the Ile de la Cite, opposite the Place Dauphine and at the entrance to the Square du Vert Galant.

However, the original statue that was produced by a pupil of Michelangelo was melted down in 1792 during the French Revolution, and a replica was reproduced by Francois-Frederic Lemot and put in the exact same location in 1818, which can still be seen today.

And we took this last photo of the equestrian statue while standing on the Pont Neuf, which was the newest bridge in Paris at the time, that King Henri IV named, yet it is now the oldest bridge and both of these are now classed as historical monuments in memory of the French Monarch.

In fact, often referred to as Good King Henry, he is recognised for his tolerance of religion, effectively ending the Wars of Religion, yet he also done much to improve citizens lives during his reign like planting trees, encouraging education, promoting the arts and improving Paris with different public works.
