The Statue of King Charles
The equestrian statue of Charles I at Charing Cross, London, is a work by the French sculptor Hubert Le Sueur, probably cast in 1633. It is considered the central point of London and the oldest bronze statue. The first Renaissance-style equestrian statue in England, it was originally commissioned by the Lord Treasurer for his house at Roehampton in 1630, but was put into hiding during the Civil War. It was re-erected at its present site by Charles II in 1675.
