The Louvre in Paris has been around since 1190, so it has seen its share of spooky tales.
The most famous is from the 16th Century, about one of the henchmen of French Queen Catherine de Medicis, Jean l’Ecorcheur. He was a butcher, who had earned himself the nickname ‘Jack The Skinner’.
Queen Catherine had him murdered, because she was afraid he knew too many unsavoury secrets about the royal family.
He is said to have risen from the dead and cursed the French Royals who inhabited the Louvre, many of whom died in a string of mysterious circumstances.
He became known as the Red Man of the Tuilieries and supposedly still lingers, dressed in red, at the museum and the adjacent Tuilieries Garden.
The museum is also thought to be haunted by a mummy called Belphegor. This myth even spurred a French television series and film.
