The [[Île de la Cité]] was occupied by the Romans during late antiquity. Later, the west part of the island was the site of a [[Merovingian]] palace; and from the 10th to the 14th centuries was the seat of the medieval [[Kings of France]]. Under [[Louis IX of France|Louis IX]] (''Saint Louis'') (1226-1270) and [[Philippe IV of France|Philippe IV]] (''Philippe the Fair'') (1284–1314) the palace was extended and more heavily fortified.
Louis IX added the remarkable [[Sainte-Chapelle]] and associated galeries, while Philippe IV created the towered facade on the river side and a large hall. Both are excellent examples of French religious and secular architecture of the period. The [[Sainte-Chapelle]], built in the French royal style, was ereceted to house the [[crown of thorns]] brought back from the crusades, and to serve as royal chapel. The "Grande-Salle" (Great Hall) was one of the largest in Europe, and its lower story, known as "La salle des gardes" surives: 209 feet long, 90 feet wide and 28 feet high. It was used as a dining-room for the 2,000 staff who worked in the palace. It was heated with four large fireplaces and lit by many windows, now blocked up. It was also used for royal banquets and judicial proceedings. The neighboring Guardroom was used as an antechamber to the Great Hall immediately above, where the king held his ''[[lit de justice]]'' (a session of [[parlement]] in the king's presence).
