Aix: Roi René

Save to my Account

The figure of Roi René, the Prince of Provence during the 15th century, sculpted in white marble by David d’Angers in 1822, and the statue is classified as a historical monument. Roi René is seen holding Muscat grapes, which he introduced to the region during his rule.  On two sides of the pedestal are medallions of the King, and on the other surfaces are inscriptions, which memorialize his reign. The statue was renovated in 2009, to celebrate the passage of 600 years since the birth of the man known as “the good king.”
