The January Strawberry of the Month - inspired by the Crown of Louis XV
The Crown of Louis XV is the sole surviving crown from the French ancient regime.
The crown was created for King Louis XV in 1722. It was used at his coronation and was embellished with diamonds from the Royal Collection. All of France’s 20 crowns of the Ancient Regime, kept in the Basilica of Saint-Denis, including the one of Saint Louis and the one said of Charlemagne, were destroyed in 1793 during the French Revolution. The crown of Louis XV was the only one to survive.
