Hôtel de Nesle (Jeanne de Bourgogne et Artois)

Jeanne de Bourgogne had inherited her hotel, known as the Hôtel de Nesle, before she was queen when she and her husband Philippe were still just countess and count of Burgundy. It was to this residence, located on the banks of the Seine in a tower of the city wall, that she retired after her husband’s death in 1322. In later years, the Hôtel de Nesle and Hôtel de Navarre were described as two of the most lovely residences in Paris.

Present-day location: 11 Quai de Conti
