The King and Queen visit the Treasure of Oignies

3rd of October 2013

During the Royal Visit to Namur on October 2, the King and Queen paid a visit to the Treasure of Oignies, which was entrusted to the King Baudoun Foundation by the Sisters of Notre Dame and is now exhibited at the Musée Provincial des Arts Anciens. The King and Queen were captivated by the brilliance of the medieval silverwork of the treasure, one of the jewels of our nation’s heritage.
The Sovereigns’ visit was also a mark of esteem for the Heritage Fund’s mission as well as for its efforts. In fact their visit honoured the totality of our collection.
