The Royal Abbey of Saint-Denis was the burial church for the rulers of France and their families. This elegant image once formed a part of the tomb effigy of the princess Marie de France (1326–1341) and her sister Blanche de France (1328–1393), daughters of Charles IV (1294–1328) and Jeanne d’Evreux (before 1313–1371)
