John I the Posthumous (1316-1316)

John Ist so- called the Posthumous (1316 † 1316), king of France and Navarre from 15th to 19th November 1316, son of Louis X le Hutin and Clemencia of Hungary.

Born after the death of his father Louis X the Stubborn, Jean I lived for five days. The child-king is not reprensented with the royal garment but with a surcoat with three bands of ermine on the shoulder, and bore, initially, a crown. A lion, symbol of royalty and resurrection lies at his feet. This white marble effigy, placed at the feet of his father, is disproportionate.
