When Anne of Brittany died in 1514, she was buried in Paris but she left her heart in Nantes literally.


Married to Charles VIII of France and then to his successor Louis XII, she'd twice been queen consort of France, but the independent duchy of Brittany was her first love. Thus, her heart was interred there separate from her body.

157636. Charles VIII of France. 157637. Louise XII

Historically, divided burials of prominent individuals are not uncommon: When Polish-born composer Frederic Chopin died in 1849, his body was laid to rest in Paris and his heart returned to his beloved Warsaw at his own request (sealed in a jar of cognac).
