Eudes de Montreuil

From EverybodyWiki Bios & Wiki

Eudes de Montreuil was a 13th-century French master builder, sculptor and combat engineer. He may have died in 1289.

Under the reign of Louis IX of France, Montreuil erected many buildings in Paris, mainly churches,[1] the chapel of the Hôtel-Dieu, the église des Chartreux, the église des Blancs-Manteaux, the église des Cordeliers de Paris [fr], the Couvent des Mathurins de Paris [fr], the église de Sainte-Catherine, the Hospice of the Quinze-Vingts. He is attributed the main portal of the church of Mantes-la-Ville (Yvelines).

He carved his own tomb: a bas-relief representing him holding a try square and surrounded by his two wives. This tomb disappeared in the fire of the church of the Cordeliers of Paris on 15 November 1580.[2]

De Montreuil may have been the father of architect Pierre de Montreuil.
