In 1349, Mallorca lost its status as a kingdom when King Jaume III and his Mallorcan army was defeated by the royal troops of Peter of Aragón.
This sculpted composition, made in bronze, portrays Prince Jaume, the son of King Jaume III, holding the deceased body of his father and the flag of the former Kingdom of Mallorca after the lost battle against the royal troops of Aragon.
Below the sculpture, on the base, you can see the coast of arms of the Mallorcan kingdom.
Entrusted to famous architect Joan Rubió i Bellver and sculptor Camps Arnau (both partners of Gaudí), the monument was inaugurated in 1927.
