Charlemagne in the Guise of Henry IV

Charlemagne in the Guise of Henry IV, Francesco Bordoni, marble.

The Chapel of the Trinity, built under the reigns of Francis I through Louis XIII, boasts an altar and retable designed by Italian sculptor Francesco Bordoni. In 1642, this Italianate marble monument was decorated with a large Jean Dubois painting of the Holy Trinity at the moment of the Deposition. It was also decorated with four bronze angels and two marble statues, the one on the left representing Charlemagne in the guise of Henry IV, and the one on the right depicting Saint Louis in the guise of Louis XIII. These works by Bordoni were made in honour of the two kings who strove to see the chapel completed.
