When it was a ruler’s castle, the Louvre began life all the more basically as a post in 1190 to secure Paris against Viking strikes. Ruler Francois I supplanted the first post with a Renaissance-style building. From that point, four centuries of French lords and heads enhanced and developed the Louvre.
