Margaret of Austria, widow of Philibert le Beau Duke of Savoy, ordered the monastery to be built to accommodate the royal tombs, including her late husband. The best artists from all over Europe contributed to its construction in the early Sixteenth century resulting in a masterpiece of Gothic architecture.
