I agree. I am disgusted and amazed that anyone would destroy part of their country's history. ..let alone a TOMB...

The tombs were symbols of the detested Ancien Régime and many had survived the 100 years war and Calvinist rampages of the 1560's.

The Collégiale Notre-Dame-et-Saint-Laurent d'Eu in Eu was the traditional burial site for the Counts d'Eu and miraculously some of the tombs have survived and now house in the crypt but are not as elaborate as the once were.

The original tomb of Isabella d'Artois,Comtesse d'Eu (1288-1344)

An Ard Ri,
Could you provide a picture of our Princess Marguerite , daughter of our beloved Duchess Marie de Bourgogne. She could have been Queen of Spain but the Infant died, Queen of France but the Dauphin died, and She married her beau Philibert de Savoie who passed away to.
She was our Governess , a time of peace for our Country.
When she passed away whe wanted to be next to her Philibert in Brou en Bresse.
Could you provide their tombs because I saw it when I was Young. She asked the best belgian Craftsmen to do the two sculptures and they were not destroyed. Thanks MO

Tomb of Margaret of Austria, in the church of Saint-Nicolas-de-Tolentin de Brou .




Her mother Marguerite de Bourbon is also buried there and more importantly the remains of Marguerite,Philippe II and Marguerites mother were never discovered by Revolutionary soldiers and their coffins were rediscovered under the choir in the mid 19th century and were repaired.

Tomb of Marguerite de Bourbon

The Tomb of Philippe II of Savoy



Its quite miraculous that the tomb monuments,mortal remains and Royal Abbey church are still standing having withstood the ravages and wanton destruction of the French Revolution.
