Maubuisson Abbey from the south

Maubuisson Abbey (French: Abbaye de Maubuisson) was a Cistercian nunnery at Saint-Ouen-l'Aumône, in the Val-d'Oise department of France, on the north-western subburbs of Paris.

History[edit]

The abbey was founded in 1236 by Blanche of Castile. She was maybe buried there in 1252.[1] The abbey thrived financially under royal patronage until the Hundred Years War.

In the fifteenth century the nuns twice supported rival abbesses.

After a century of decline the abbey was suppressed before the French Revolution in 1787 on order of the King Louis XVI.
