Local tradition has it that in 1731, King Charles (Károly) III erected the ark, the city’s finest baroque monument, to appease the angry people of Győr after one of his soldiers accidentally knocked a monstrance containing the Blessed Sacrament out of the bishop’s hands during a religious procession.
