The Hotel National des Invalides Les Invalides is perhaps simply known, and is just one of the great monuments in Paris that you can find around. Originally thought of in 1670 by King Louis XIV for a place to war veterans who are no longer able to keep fighting for the country.
This place is a fantastic place if you are in history., And especially military history to go particularly interested, with a very rich history of Les Invalides, but also with the grave of Napoleon I as well
To expand on the grave of Napoleon, as most people know is Napoleon, and was an important part of history and is still taught in all French military history in all schools of his influence. And some twenty years after the man's death, his remains were brought upstream along the Seine to Paris.
Once his remains were there, he had a state funeral, which ventured through Paris and paused at the Arc de Triomphe, which was built on the orders themselves, from there we went to the Champs Elysées and finally to the Hotel des Invalides, where He now rests in the military building and the Eglise du Dome church.
