France's national day on July 14th is called Bastille Day in English.
The day commemorates when a mob of people on July 14 1789 took a medieval castle, a symbol of Bourbon Royalty, in the opening action of the French Revolution.
My Question is: how many keys to the Bastille are still in existence today and where are they?
I know General Lafayette came into the possession of one of the keys and sent it to his friend and superior officer in the American Revolution, George Washington. That key is on display at Washington's home in Alexandria Virginia, Mount Vernon, to this day, when it's not out on loan touring France.
