The Conciergerie, originally part of the former royal palace of the French kings, it takes its name from the high ranking court official known as the Concierge, or keeper of the palace, entrusted by the king with judicial rights within the royal residence. A unique ensemble of Gothic chambers, dating from the reign of Philippe the Fair, survive today as an outstanding testament to the splendors of the 14th century royal court. The 18th century "revolutionary prison" refers to the Reign of Terror and includes a re-creation of Queen Marie-Antoinette's cell.
