Pierre de Montreuil (vers 1200–1267)

Very little is known about this architect, although he had acquired a reputation as one of the best architects of the Rayonnant Gothic style.

In Paris, he oversaw the construction of the Sainte-Chapelle, as well as the Chapel of the Virgin in the Saint-Germain-des-Près abbey (where he is buried), and worked on the construction of Notre-Dame. He also completed the Saint-Denis Abbey near Paris.
