Here is the heart of Louis XVII
Did all the French monarchs have their hearts preserved?

The majority of French King and Queen's remains were buried at Saint Denis outside Paris,whilst their hearts and entrails were buried at another Abbey or Church with a separate monument.

Example : Heart Monument of Henri II of France,commissioned in 1561 by his widow,Queen-Regent of France Catherine de Médicis.It was originally housed at the now destroyed l'église des Célestins de Paris.

Lost Royal Tombs

Quite a lot of French Royal Tombs were destroyed & lost forever following the French Revolution,many of the churches too have been demolished .Whilst St Denis Abbey was reserved for Monarchs,consorts and their children/spouses many churches in Paris were used as burial sites for the cadet branches of the French Royal Family & contained many Princely & Royal Tombs.

List of lost churches

The Dominican Couvent des Jacobins de la rue Saint-Honoré
The Dominican Couvent des Jacobins de la rue Saint-Jacques
The Couvent des Célestins de Paris.
