The Montjoies of St. Louis (d. 1270), erected at sites where his pall bearers stopped on the way to St. Denis, and the Eleanor Crosses, commemorating her funeral procession to Westminster (d. 1290), have been analyzed by Robert Branner.1 He demonstrated that the English monuments served as cenotaphs, while those to Louis IX functioned to insure the King's canonization. However, the architectural impact of these constructions has not been precisely defined.
