Statue of Charles XIV John former king of Sweden

Slussen, Västra Götaland County, Sweden
15 Kudos
As you drive through the Central Stockholm area between the Old Town Gamla Stan and Slussen you will come across the Square of Charles John. In the square you will see the statue of Charles XIV John mounted on his horse with his command baton pointing out ahead of him. Charles was born in January 1763 and became King of Sweden in 1818 and remained King until his death in March 1844. The statue, from what I can understand, was built in two stages as a combined Italian and German effort and was inaugurated in November 1854 in honor of King Charles.
