"King Louis IX Dit Saint Louis, Fixed Under Glass, 18th Century"
Very rare historical memory. Under glass depicting Louis IX (1214-1270) says St. Louis with the crown of thorns. XVIIIth CENTURY gilt frame. The crowned king of fleurdelysé covered coat trimmed with ermine, kneeling before the altar, the royal crown on a cushion, presents the Crown of Thorns that the king had acquired in 1239 with other relics of the Passion of Christ for huge sums, which greatly increased the prestige of the monarch and his kingdom. Louis IX of France wants a Christian nation and Paris a center of Christianity. April 26, 1248, Louis IX inaugurates Holy Chapel in the Ile de la Cité. This chapel built from 1242 to 1248 represents the pinnacle of Gothic art. It was intended to house the Holy Relics of Jesus, the crown of thorns, reported in France by King from Constantinople.
