Chartres

Chartres, capital of Beauce, and today chief town of the Eure-and-dormouse, department form this old province and of part of the Pole, carries:

Mouths, has three besans money, each one danche of five parts has dextral, load of a flower of lily has sinistral, of three oil cakes out of stake, and a kind of figure hieroglyphic, the whole of sand, with the bent chief of France.

Currencies frappees about 1300, under Charles de Valois, fifteenth count de Chartres, carry to the reverse a similar print has that of these besans. We do not have gives name to the hieroglyphic figure which is there, not knowing if it is necessary to see there, with certain authors, a plan of fortress, with others, indecipherable Gallic characters today, or, with others still, the unrecognizable copy of a head of woman who sees herself on some one former time currencies.

The origin of the antique metropolis of Autricum Carnutes, is lost in the mists of time, a popular tradition, which hardly does not make it go up less far with the flood, also wants that the cathedral, which is placee under the invocation of the mother of God, rose on the foundations of a pagan temple dedicates has a virgin mother, Virgini Pariturae. At all events degree of credit which one can grant has these accounts, one knows that the principal college of the Gallic druids was in the Chartres-native country, and that the episcopal seat of this city dates from the third century. Saint Bernard preached the second crusade in 1145 there. Chartres was successively the theatre of the war etrangere, the civil war and the religious war. It is in its walls that Henri IV was crown in 1593.
