THE PAPAL REGALIA

In 1797 Napoleon exacted from the Holy See nearly all papal regalia with the exception of the Tiara of Gregory XIII (16th century). The precious papal regalia, including the priceless tiaras of Julius II and St Silvester, were broken up by the French and disposed. In 1804 Napoleon offered Pius VII a new tiara which contained precious gems earlier stolen by the French from the papal treasury.
The most important items of the Papal regalia are kept at the Vatican Treasury and include:
-Tiara of Gregory XIII (16th c.)
-Paper tiara made for the coronation of Pius VII in Venice (1800)
-Tiara of Pius VII (1804),
-Tiaras of Gregory XVI (1835 and 1845),
-The Coronation Tiara of Pius IX (1846)
-Tiara given to Pius IX by Queen Isabella of Spain (1854),
-Tiara given to Pius IX by the Belgians (1871),
-Tiara of Pius IX, or the Palatine Tiara (1877),
-Tiara of Leo XIII (1887),
-Tiara of Leo XIII (1888),
-Tiara given to Leo XIII by Emperor Francis Joseph I of Austria (1894),
-Tiara of Leo XIII (1903),
-Tiara of Pius X (1908),
-Tiara of Pius XI (1922),
-Tiara of John XXIII (1959).

Another Tiara of Pope Pius IX (from the 1850s) is kept at the museum of the Basilica of the Sacred Heart at Notre Dame, Indiana (USA).
The Tiara of Pope Paul VI (1963) is kept at the Basilica of the National Shrine of the Immaculate Conception (Washington D.C., USA).
