The Church of Our Lady of Paris was built during the reign of Childebert I, the fourth
son of King Clovis & Queen St. Clotilde. It was dedicated under the invocation of the Blessed Virgin, whose title its patrons have preserved with zeal and veneration.
King Philip Augustus in 1191, and then King St. Louis in 1257, would continue, in the same place [on the foundations of the ancient church
built by Childebert I], to expand the ediface - which is known today as the famous *Notre Dame
*Its official name is Cathédrale Notre-Dame de Paris (Cathedral
of Our Lady of Paris)
