Twenty meters above the ground, a series of twenty-eight royal personages representing twenty-eight generations of the kings of Judah who preceded Christ. Each statue measures over three and a half meters high. The heads of the statues date from the nineteenth century and are the product of the sculpture workshop of the restorer Viollet-le-Duc. Indeed, the original statues were beheaded in 1793 during the French Revolution by the sans-culottes, who wrongly believed they represented the rulers of the kingdom of France.
