Joan II of Navarre, John I "the Posthumous", Robert II the Pious and Henry I

John I, called "the Posthumous", was born after his father king Louis X had died. The boy only lived and reigned for 5 days in November 1316. The white marble effigy is evidently out of proportion.
His half-sister Joan (1312-1349) was queen of Navarre from 1329 until 1349.
The stylized gisants of the Capetian kings Robert II the Pious (972-1031) and his son Henry I (1008-1060) belong to the batch ordered by Saint Louis in the 13th century.
