1. Square du Vert-Galant Marker
Inscription. Square du Vert-Galant Jusqu’à la construction du Pont-Neuf, l’île de la Cité se terminait par le Jardin du Roi, où fut édifiée la place Dauphine. La pointe actuelle de l’île est constituée de la réunion de trois îlots à la Cité, assise centrale du nouveau pont. L’îlot du nord, nommé île du Patriarche, se prolongeait à l’est par un minuscule îlot portant un moulin, dit de la Gourdaine puis de la Monnaie, car son énergie hydraulique était utilisée pour battre le monnayage royal. Celui du sud, le plus grand, était dit île aux Bureau, car il appartenait à Hugues Bureau à la fin du XVe siècle. Le 11 mars 1314, Jacques de Molay, grand maître de l’order du Temple, et Guy, commandeur des Templiers de Normandie, y furent brûlés vifs.

The island's north island named Patriarch, extended to the east by a tiny island with a mill, called the Gourdaine, then the Mint, because its waterpower was used to power the royal mint. The South, the largest, was called Bureau Island, because it belonged to Hugh
