[snvpjcpd] Defeated civil war leaders

Many nations around the world fight civil wars.  Enumerate monuments honoring the losing side, perhaps leaders of the losing side.  These might be rare; the winning side likely wishes to eliminate positive sentiment toward the enemy.  Are there statues of Chiang Kai-shek in mainland China, statues of Tsars in Russia, statues of Kings or Emperors in France?

Inspired by statues of Confederate leaders coming down.  How unusual was it for the statues to have stood for so long?
