Compiègne, home of the French kings from the 5th century to the 19th century. It was one of three seats of the royal government, the others being Versailles and Fontainebleau.

The Forest of Compiègne, with its grand avenue, starts immediately in front of the palace. It is in the Forest of Compiègne that the Germans signed the armistice ending WW1 on November 11, 1918, in the railway carriage of Marshal Foch, supreme commander of the Allied armies.

Diana and her brother Apollo I believe. Compiègne was a major hunting ground of the French kings, hence all the Diana symbolism. And Apollo, the Sun God, was of course the symbol of Louis XIV, the Sun King.

Messa di Bolsena, tapestry from the Gobelins:



The royal parish church of Saint Jacques (St James). Joan of Arc came to pray here on the morning of May 23, 1430 just before the English and the Burgundians launched their assault on Compiègne.
