Jan Bertelius (Bertels) was the abbot of the monastery in Echternach from 1595 to 1945 until his death in 1607. But in addition, he was also a historian and writer. He was the first to write a book about the history of Luxembourg, which was already published in Cologne in 1605 and its monument is about another book. After his death, the monument was placed on the grave in the monastery chapel. But when the French troops invaded the country in 1794, it was thrown into the river Sauer (Sûre) to not destroy it by French soldiers. After Luxembourg regained independence, the monument was extracted from the river and was set to No bridge. In 1860, the monument was destroyed by a group of drunked inhabitants of the city, who broke it into pieces. 20 years later, a new monument was set on the bridge, which was destroyed in 1944 when the German troops were blowing up the bridge. When the bridge was rebuilt in 1950 the next monument of the Opath was set on it.
