The Abbaye royale Notre Dame du Lys (royal Abbey of Our Lady of the Lily), now in ruins, was a Cistercian abbey of nuns founded
by Blanche of Castille [mother of King St. Louis IX] in 1244 A.D. It was a site of royal pilgrimage for the French monarchs, for more than half a millennium. Note: Louis XVI and Marie-Antoinette (whom Marie-Julie Jahenny prophesied
will be formally declared saints), were the last royal couple to come on pilgrimage to the abbey of Our Lady of the Lily, before its destruction by the satanic French Revolution.
