The Armor Of Francis The 1st

The Armor Of Francis The 1st
It is an equestrian set of Francis The 1st composed of a rider's armour, a horse's bard, and a saddle and stirrups. This diplomatic gift ordered in the 16th century and intended for François The 1st never reached its recipient. Three centuries later, it was Napoleon I who had it brought to France in 1806. It was taken as a war treasure to Germany during the Third Reich and only returned to France in 1956. Since then, it has been kept in the Musée de l'Armée at the Hôtel des Invalides.
