  • This big statue is well-made, but especially well-displayed as it is on the Parvis (the plaza) in front of Notre Dame and the Hotel Dieu. There are people around all the time and it's a great place to...  more »
  • This statue shows Charlemagne on horseback, with a long beard, and this one is surrounded by two of his leudes, Roland and Olivier. Roland de Roncevaux, the one with a sword in his hand. This statue is very pretty but this one does not reflect the historical truth 1) We know that Charlemagne had a mustache and not a long beard 2) Charlemagne was crowned in 800 and Roland died in 778 In conclusion, it's just a very pretty decorative statue which dates back to 1878, that a statue does not show the reality of the facts.
