Description

Statue of Bayard in full armour.

The 1895 statue was removed by the Germans in 1917; it was found in Düsseldorf in 1922, and replaced on its base in 1926. It was again removed in 1940 and melted in 1942 under the Vichy regime. The original plaster draft had remained intact in the Clément-Bayard factories in Mézières. A new cast was made in 2005,

Claudine LEDOUX
Maire de Charleville-Mézières
a inauguré la statue du Chevalier
BAYARD
le 9 octobre 2005
On the front of the base-plate of the statue:
Héraut mon ami, vous vous en retournerez et direz à Messeigneurs de
Nassau et Francisque: Puisque le Roi m’a fait l'honneur de s’en fier
a moi pour garder cette ville, j’espère la lui conserver si longuement qu’il
ennuiera beaucoup plus ä vos maîtres d’être au siège, qu’à moi d’être
assigé et que je ne suis plus enfant qu’on étonne de paroles
