About Catherine-Gabrielle Moitié, Fille du Roi

The article shows the display on a column to honor one of the Filles du Roi: "Catherine Moitié’s name is at the base of the trunk, with the names of her 11 children written on wooden planks surrounding the tree. Protruding metal branches represent her grandchildren, while the names of her great-grandchildren are inscribed on hanging, autumnal leaves."
