36 Baron Lambermont Statue in Antwerp, Belgium

Ancient Antwerpen folklore explains how Brabo slayed a giant to stop tolls along the Scheldt River. This myth came to life, however, in the mid-19th century when Belgium statesman Baron Auguste Lambermont led a campaign to stop crippling levies by the Dutch on commercial navigation along the river and Antwerp’s port. His success in 1863 led to significant growth for the city. This monument, nicknamed “the little boat,” was erected in 1912 in Lambermontplaats.
