The royal tombs at Saint-Denis had been despoiled following outbreak of the French Revolution and their contents stolen, dispersed, or buried in a common pit outside the abbey. Following the Restoration of the Bourbons the royal sarcophagi were returned to the abbey church of Saint-Denis from a museum where they had been kept. As it was impossible to determine which bones buried in a common pit by the revolutionaries belonged to which king or queen, it was decided that all royal bones should be laid to rest in the Ossarium, a kind of common mausoleum for all kings and queens (only King Louis VII, Queen Louise of Lorraine, King Louis XVI, Queen Marie Antoinette and King Louis XVIII have tombs containing their own mortal remains). In this way most sarcophagi at Saint-Denis stand empty.

FRENCH REGALIA

Almost all French regalia, including the coronation crown of the French kings, called the Crown of Charlemagne, were stolen and then destroyed during the French Revolution. The only important items of the French regalia which survived the Revolution is the Joyeuse, the coronation sword of the French kings (10th-11th c.), the sceptre of Charles V (14th c., formerly in the treasury of St Denis Abbey), the Ampulla (Sainte Ampoule) and the coronation crown of Louis XV (1722). They are displayed at the Louvre in Paris.

Other items of the French regalia at the Louvre include the crown of Charlemagne made for display during Napoleon I’s coronation (1804), Napoleon I's sceptre from 1804 (the so called Hand of Justice), the imperial throne of Napoleon I, Charles X’s coronation sword (the sword was stolen in the 1970s and never found) and the crown of Empress Eugenia (1855), consort of Napoleon III. Charles X had a crown for symbolic display made for his coronation in 1825. The Crown of Napoleon III was broken up in 1886. Many of the surviving French Crown Jewels were sold by the French government in 1883.

The crown of the Dauphin Louis used at the coronation of his father, Charles X in 1825, is believed to exist, but its whereabouts are not known.
