Magnificent glass of the mid-C16 in all the main windows. It was given by Claude de Longwy, Cardinal de Givry, Bishop of Langres who was the uncle of Jacquette Longwy, wife of Louis II de Bourbon. Apart from the east window with the Crucifixion the main scenes feature incidents from the life of St Louis, while below are a galaxy of dukes, counts and princes. In the tracery lights are scenes from the Passion. The glaziers are unknown.
