"Les Invalides became, immediately after their completion the object of admiration of France and Europe...When in 1717 the Russian Emperor Peter the Great made his famous trip to Paris, nothing more worthy of his visit was found, but the Invalides. To mark his contentment of all that was shown to him, the emperor wished to drink with the soldiers."
