These figures known as
The Burghers of Calais
commemorate six citizens of that town
who offered themselves
as hostages to Edward III
after he had vainly besieged their town
for nearly a year in 1317.
The story goes that their lives were spared
on the intercession of Edward's queen
Philippa of Hainault.
