Inscription. Au lendemain de leur sacre, la tradition voulait que les Rois de France, devenus "le bras armé de l'Eglise" se rendent en un brillant cortège militaire de la Cathédrale à Saint-Remi en empruntant la rue Saint-Denis puis la rue Neuve (aujourd'hui rues Chanzy et Gambett); cette parade était appelée "cavalcade de Saint-Remi". Le souverain était entouré de ses Gardes du Corps en grande tenue et des délégations de nombreux régiments de cavalerie et d'infanterie, défilant entre deux haies de troupes disposées tout au long du parcours. A l'arrivée, le Roi allait se recueillir devant le tombeau de saint Remi et était reçu à l'abbaye. La dernière cavalcade est celle du sacre de Charles X, le 31 mai 1825.
