Travel Tips for Saint-Denis

How to Bury One Person in More Than One Place

by hquittner

The belief that redeeming qualities are emanated from relics is a strong one. This has led to intense rivalries for the remains of revered individuals. In some instances body parts serve as surrogates for the entire person (relics). They may be “awarded” to sites particularly favored by the deceased or others in power. The heart of Francis I is at St.-Denis in a special urn (created by P. Bontemps (1550-5). It originally stood on a special column. Only the heart of du Guesclin made it back to Dinan where it is buried. His bones are here and other relics somewhere else. Jeanne de Bourbon,’s effigy is clutching a bag to her breast indicating that only her entrails are buried “here” (the effigy was brought to St.-Denis from a destroyed convent in Paris).

Maison d'éducation de la Légion d’Honneur

by MM212

Located just south of the Basilique Saint-Denis, la Maison d'éducation de la Légion d’Honneur is an educational institute established in the early 19th century. A grand edifice was constructed for the purpose on the site of the ancient Abbey of Saint-Denis, which had been abandoned.

Tombs of Francois I and Claude de France

by Diana75

One of the sumptuously decorated mausoleums in Saint-Denis is the one with the tombs of Francois I and Claude de France.

Placed just next to the entrace in the part of the Basilica housing the Kings' tombs, the mausoleum was made by Philibert Delorme and Pierre Bontemps.

Nearby is the wonderful adorned urn holding the heart of the great Renaissance king Francois I which can be easily identified from the letter "F" that marks many of his works.

Henri II and Catherine de Medici

by Diana75

Henri II and Catherine de Medici, the last great figures of the Valois line of Capetians, are also represented praying.

The son of Francois I, Henri II died tragically in an accident in 1559.

Catherine de Medici survived her husband by 30 years and she was the one who commissioned their effugies.

As the first one was presenting them dead she felt terrified and ordered another effigy that was showing them asleep.

The effigies have been made by Primaticcio and Germain Pilon.
