| View Cart ⇗ | Info

“These celebrated bronze horses were among the trophies which the Venetians received as their share of the plunder when Constantinople was sacked by the crusaders. They were placed over the portico of St. Mark’s in Venice. They were carried off to Paris by Napoleon during his ascendancy, but upon his downfall were restored to the Venetians."—Myers, 1905
