  • In Paris, Porte des Ternes, (today, General Koening's Square) is a prominent chapel called Our Lady of Compassion. However, this chapel, originally known as the Royal Chapel of Saint-Ferdinand, was built, at the request of Queen Marie-Amélie, in 1842-1843, at the site where his son the Duke of Orleans, royal prince, died, at the age of 32, at the following an accident. It was then completely forgotten and lost in the middle of administrative buildings. She was in a very bad place. State and could not even be seen from the boulevard. However, during the construction of the vast 'Palace of Congress' in 1974, this mausoleum was saved. It has been moved from its location, stone by stone, to its current location, about 150m. On this occasion, his name was, unfortunately, changed to become 'Our Lady of Compassion.'. It should be remembered that this commemorative chapel was consecrated, in 1843, in the presence of the entire royal family, by Bishop Affre, Archbishop of Paris. This chapel is open every day. You can admire the beautiful stained glass windows (drawings by Ingres) and the lying of the young Prince Ferdinand-Philippe, the eldest son of Louis-Philippe I.
