The bridge that preceded this bridge was opened for traffic in 1834 and connects the right bank of the Seine with the island of Île Saint-Louis named after the King of France who reigned at the time the bridge was opened. In 1860, to cope with the increased traffic, the bridge was destroyed and the current bridge was built in its place, which opened to traffic in 1862.
The length of the bridge is 100 meters.
