Tomb of Ermengol X, Count of Urgell


On view at The Met Cloisters in Gallery 09

In his will, Ermengol X ordered a fine tomb to be installed in the chapel of the monastery church of Santa Maria de Bellpuig de les Avellanes. The earliest surviving descriptions correspond with this effigy in mail and plate armor.
The sarcophagus is probably an eighteenth-century replacement made during the restoration of the church.
