Pont de Sully in Paris Bridge

Maximilien de Béthune, duke of Sully, Henri IV’s minister, gave its name to the bridge! A pretty recent building, raised in 1876 in order to replace the iron footbridge created in 1838: the Damiette passerelle. It owns its name from the Egyptian city besieged by king of France saint Louis, patron saint of the Parisian island.
