Opening of the tomb of Queen Berthe

In 1818, bones identified as those of Queen Berthe, which had been found in the Abbey church, were moved to a tomb in the Gachet chapel of the parish church. The marble slab that closes the tomb recounts the queen’s legendary past.

On 20 May, Simon Brunet Production produced a series of short reports on the opening and study of this mysterious tomb and its as yet unexplored contents. Scientists, art historians, archaeologists and anthropologists will reveal the secrets surrounding the burial of Queen Berthe.
