The Sainte-Chapelle is a royal medieval 13th-century Gothic chapel, located near the Palais de la Cité, on the Île de la Cité in the heart of Paris, France. It was built by Louis IX for use as his royal chapel. Sainte-Chapelle was founded by King Louis IX. He constructed it as a chapel for a royal palace and to help him survive during this time period. The palace itself has been removed, leaving just the chapelle. Louis, in 1239, purchased the chapelle for 135,000. The entire chapel cost 40,000 livres to build. Sainte-Chapelle was planned in 1241, started in 1246 and quickly completed: it was finished on April 26, 1248. During the French Revolution, the chapel was changed into an administrative office, and the windows had filing cabinets.
