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 Cathedral.


*Its official name is Cathédrale Notre-Dame de Paris (Cathedral of Our Lady of Paris)
