In October 1789 the French royal family took up residence at this palace with extensive gardens located in central Paris, next to the Louvre. Despite one escape attempt, they remained there as virtual hostages until 10 August 1792, when the Paris masses stormed the palace and overthrew the monarchy. The remaining defenders were massacred.
