Poitiers, St Radegonde


The glass mostly dates from c. 1268-1276, although over the centuries therer has been much damage (e.g. the English in the C14 and the Huguenots in 1562). Much reorganisation in the C18 and early C20. Windows 115 and 116 contain reset pieces. Window 111 dates from the early C20 in the style of its neighbour 109.

St Radegonde was queen to Clotaire in the mid-six century; hence her distinctive royal Capetian dress with fleur-de-lys in a number of windows (see king and queen for example in window 114).
