This equestrian statue of Louis XIII is made from marble and was done Jean-Pierre Cortot (1821). It’s been on duty in the centre of Square Louis-XIII (Place des Vosges) since 1825, replacing an earlier statue, commissioned by Armand Jean du Plessis de Richelieu which was destroyed during the French Revolution.
