Great European Lives Podcast

In this episode, host Charlie Connelly examines the life of French naval commander and privateer Jean Bart. Made a Knight of the Order of St. Louis by Louis XIV, he is remembered as one of Europe’s most extraordinary maritime figures. By the end of the Nine Years’ War, he was responsible for the sinking of 30 enemy warships. Today, a statue of him resides in the square of the town which carries his name, his sword raised and his gaze focussed out onto the English Channel.
