B\u00E9reng\u00E8re (ca. 1165-1230) was Queen of the English as the wife of King Richard I of England. Mus\u00E9e de la reine B\u00E9reng\u00E8re is a museum of Le Mans history located in three half-timbered merchant's houses, ca. 1230. The museum is located on the old High Street that served to connect all the medieval city, both canonical and aristocratic houses. It is in the area known as la cit\u00E9 Plantagen\u00EAt. After being seized by William I of England, Le Mans fell into the hands of the Plantagenets in the mid-12th century. The houses were restored by Adolphe Singher (1836-1910) and acquired by the city in 1924.
