First discovered in a mine in India in 1701, this remarkable gem has passed from hand to hand,from family to family, from country to country, and from setting to setting. It has been owned by the most powerful heads of states of Europe, including Louis XV, Marie Antoinette, and Napoleon Bonaparte. Violence, greed, burglary, and love have all played a role in the history and the legend of France’s most famousdiamond, which now rests in a glass case in the Louvre Museum.
