Description:
Eustache de Saint Pierre is the best known mayor from the six noblemen of Calais, "The Burghers of Calais", who went with "a shirt and a rope around his neck" to the King of England at that time, Edward III, to surrender in the name of the people of Calais (August 1347).

According to the chronicler Jean Froissart, the king pardoned him at the request of his wife, Philippa of Hainault.

The scene of the surrender of the mayor of Calais was immortalized in a bronze statue by Rodin and can be seen in twelve copies, including the Belfry square in Calais, the garden of Parliament in London or at the art museum Glyptotek in Copenhagen (Denmark), and the Rodin Museum in Paris.
