The monument of the four allies is dedicated exclusively to the French army who defended the city of Giurgiu. In 1922, the French delegation that came to Romania on the occasion of the coronation of King Ferdinand I in Alba Iulia, arrived in Giurgiu and awarded the city with the highest French order “War Cross with Palmettes”. The event is recorded on a marble plaque found in the former hall of the City Hall, on which are inscribed the words: “Through the mission composed of Marshal Foch, General Berthelot, General Weynard, General Petain, Minister Plenipotentiary Deshaner, citation on the French army: Giurgiu, a city whose population gave the example of the most beautiful courage during the heavy bombing that took part in November 1916 at the crossing of the Danube by enemy troops – will be given to the city of Giurgiu.”

In 1920, two years before that event, a monumental ensemble was built for the french army and was located in the “Alley” Park. It was built of four massive granite blocks that symbolize the four allied powers of 1916. At the base, on the left, we find the inscription “Armee francais du Danube, 1910”. In the right part we find the inscription “On November 10, 1918, the 210th French Infantry Regiment crossed the Danube with great force, the first episode of operations by French and Romanian forces that drove the common enemy out of Romania.”

On November 10, 1918, the 210th French Infantry Regiment resisted the Danube in the first episode of operations carried out by the French and Romanian armies that pursued the common enemy on Romanian territory.
