Equestrian statue of Richard the Lionheart (coeur de lion), King of England (1189-1199), located in Old Palace Yard outside the Houses of Parliament (Palace of Westminster), London.
The bronze statue was sculpted by Baron Carlo Marochetti and completed in 1856. The statue shows King Richard I on horseback, wearing a mail shirt and lifting a sword into the air. Bas-relief panels showing the Battle of Ascalon and Richard pardoning Bertran de Born were added to the stone plinth in 1866.
Thanks for all the C&Cs on 'Imbolc'.
