An island located in the middle of the Seine River in Paris, France, Ile Saint Louis has been used for over four centuries by the French people. Originally there were two islands located here, but they were combined into one during the early 1600s. King Louis XIII, who ruled France from 1610 to 1643, oversaw the island's development. Ile Saint Louis is named not after the king who created it, but rather after Saint Louis IX, who ruled France from 1226 to 1270.
