It seems the burial sites of the Counts of Flanders were not so fortunate most of the tombs were vandalized or destroyed by the rampaging Calvinists during the iconoclastic fury of 1566,what ever survived were desecrated and dumped by the French Revolutionary forces 1793-1795.

Example of the tombs at the now destroyed Collégiale Saint-Pierre de Lille

Tombeau de Louis de Male, Marguerite de Brabant et Marguerite de Dampierre




Tomb of Louis I of Flanders at the now destroyed St. Donatian's Cathedral in Bruges.
