Rois et empereurs au Louvre

Author(s): Anne  Gutman

€ 7.62 tax included

What could be more natural than learning about French history at the Louvre? The palace was built, enlarged and embellished by the kings and emperors who governed the country. When it became a museum after the French Revolution, it housed their former collections in addition to magnificent décor.

From the earliest ruler, Childebert, to Napoleon III in the 19th century, not to mention Charlemagne, Saint-Louis, François I, Henri IV, Louis XIV, Napoleon I and many more, the portraits of the kings and emperors of France bring history to life.
