There is a legendary story about the origin of the statue. A boy named Manneken got up in the middle of the night to pee and saw a burning fuse sticking out of his neighbor’s house (it was said that he met the French army who was about to bomb the city with gunpowder). The child could not find water to put out the fire. He had an idea to use his urine to put out the fuse and rescue the trapped people. In order to remember the little boy, he made a stone statue in place and kept it forever for future generations.
In order to celebrate the rebirth of Brussels from the French war, the then ruler of Bavaria Maximilian II, put on a blue satin coat and a hat with feathers. Louis XV, the French king, once dressed the child in the clothes of a marquis, making him a noble, and awarded him a cross of St. Louis, so that all soldiers who passed in front of him would salute him.
