Tuileries Palace

Up to 1871 the Tuileries Palace was a palace in Paris, France,on the right bank of the River Seine.

After the death of Henry II of France in 1559, his widow, Catherine de' Medici (1519-1589) planned a new palace. She began the building of the palace of Tuileries in 1564, using architect Philibert de l'Orme. The name derives from the tile kilns or tuileries which previously occupied the site. The palace was formed by a series of long, narrow buildings with high roofs that created one major and two minor courtyards. The southeast corner of Tuileries joined the Louvre. The building was greatly enlarged in the 1600s.-wikipedia.en
