The donjon of Vincennes was the home of many prisoners throughout the centuries. Graffiti such as this can be found on every floor, remnants of a life confined. Famous prisoners of Vincennes include: Henri IV, temporarily imprisoned during the Wars of Religion, the Marquis de Sade from 1777 to 1784, Nicolas Fouquet from 1661 to 1664, Mirabeau from 1777 to 1782, Denis Diderot in 1749, Jean Henri Latude from 1749-50 and again in 1764-65 and John Vanbrugh from 1691 to 1692. During the Nazi occupation 30 hostages were murdered on Aug. 20th, 1944. Executions at Vincennes include the duc d’Enghien, in 1804, and Mata-Hari, in 1917.
