A monument to the bravest Marshal of Napoleon, Michel Ney, was erected near the place of his execution in 1815. The son of a Cooper became a Marshal of France for his unparalleled bravery in the battles of Austerlitz, Jena, and Friedland. Ney was with Napoleon in the Russian campaign, his corps attacked in the center at the battle of Borodino, he was with Napoleon to the end. After the Emperor's exile on the island of Elba, Ney swore an oath to the Bourbons, who were returned to the throne by the Russian, English and Prussian invaders. He despised them, as did all of France. After Napoleon returned from Elba, the stupid Bourbons sent Ney to arrest him. However, neither Her nor his troops not to shoot in the face. Bonaparte's 100 days ended with Waterloo and Napoleon's final defeat. For the Emperor, this ended with a reference to the island of St. Elena, and for Ney by firing squad. The sculptor Francois Rude, the author of the famous bas-relief of the Marseillaise on the place Letoile, wanted to depict Ney at the time of the shooting, where Ney behaved very courageously. However, Napoleon III wanted to see the Marshal at the moment of victory. Rude managed to do that, too. Ney was a hero both in the moments of glory and in the days of defeat.

Saw this bronze monument whilst we were on a bus tour, but not really worthy making a trip for unless you're into military history perhaps.

This monument to Michel Ney was erected in honor to a famous military commander who fought in many battles during the Napoleon wars. Therefore, he became Napoleon's army Marshal. It's not worth a detour going out of your way, but if you're in this area close to Luxembourg palace have a look.
