The earliest Renaissance-style equestrian statue in England. Originally commissioned in 1630 by Charles I's Lord High Treasurer, Lord Richard Weston, for his estate in Roehampton (then in Surrey). Erected on the site of the Charing Cross in 1674-5, when it was set on its current pedestal, designed by Sir Christopher Wren. The reliefs were carved by Joshua Marshall, Master Mason to Charles II.
