FR Parliament


The changing owners of Palais Bourbon reflect France’s historico-political development, as the structure, originally built for the daughter of Louis XIV, was bought by his successor for the crown and later nationalised during the French Revolution. The "Council of the Five Hundred" first used it as the legislative Lower House, which it remains until today. Under Napoleon, architect Bernard Poyet designed the portico facing the banks of the river Seine.
