SUMMARY / RELATED TOPICS

Capitole de Toulouse

The Capitole is the heart of the municipal administration of the French city of Toulouse and its city hall. It is not the same Capitol as the one where St Saturninus was martyred, the latter referring to the Capitoline temple of the Roman city, while the first buildings of the current Capitole were erected on this site in the 12th century; the Capitouls of Toulouse embarked on the construction of the original building in 1190 to provide a seat for the government of a province growing in wealth and influence. The name "Capitole" referred not only to the Roman Capitol but to the capitulum, the chapter of the governing magistrates, it was a centre of contention during the 1562 Toulouse Riots, with Huguenot forces holding it with captured cannon. In the first half of the 19th century, the structures surrounding the vast Place du Capitole were redesigned, but the current façade, 135 m long and built of the characteristic pink brick in Neoclassical style, dates from 1750, built according to plans by Guillaume Cammas.

The eight columns represent the original eight capitouls. In 1873, Eugène Viollet-le-Duc built a bell tower typical of the style of northern France on top of the donjon of the building, it was in this donjon that Jean Calas, a Protestant victim of a religiously-biased trial, was interrogated. Only the Henri IV courtyard and gate survive from the original medieval buildings, it was in this courtyard that the Duke de Montmorency was decapitated after his rebellion against Cardinal Richelieu. A thorough redesign of the Place du Capitole in 1995 reserved the space for pedestrians; some of the interior of the Capitole can be traced back to the 16th century. Today the Capitole houses the city hall, as well as the Théâtre du Capitole de Toulouse opera company and the Orchestre national du Capitole de Toulouse; the Salle des Illustres contains 19th century works of art.

French submarine Minerve (S647)

Minerve was a diesel–electric submarine in the French Navy, launched in 1961. The vessel was one of eleven of the Daphné class. In January 1968, Minerve was lost with all hands in bad weather while returning to her home port of Toulon. Minerve sank two days after the submarine INS Dakar of the Israeli Navy disappeared in the eastern Mediterranean between Crete and Cyprus. Two other submarines were lost to unknown causes the same year, the Soviet submarine K-129 and the American USS Scorpion. After more than 50 years missing, the location of the wreck was discovered in 2019, 45 km south of Toulon; the Daphné class comprised second-class submarines, intermediate between the larger, ocean-going submarines of the Narval class and the small, specialised antisubmarine vessels of the Aréthuse class. The design was a development of the Aréthuse class, were required to keep the low noise levels and high manoeuvrability of the smaller submarines, while keeping a small crew and being easy to maintain. Minerve had an overall length of 57.8 m, with a beam of 6.8 m and a draught of 5.25 m.

Displacement was 883 t surfaced and 1,060 t submerged. The submarine had diesel-electric propulsion, with two 12-cylinder SEMP Pielstick diesel engines rated at a total of 1,300 bhp and one electric motor, rated at 1,600 shp, which drove two propeller shafts, giving a speed of 13.5 kn on the surface and 16 kn submerged. The ship's machinery and equipment were modular in order to ease maintenance. Range was 4,500 nmi at 5 kn; the submarine was designed to dive to a depth of 300 m. Minerve was fitted with twelve 550 mm torpedo tubes, with eight in the bow and four in the stern. No reload torpedoes were carried; the ship had a crew of 45, composed of 39 enlisted. Minerve was ordered under the 1957 French Naval Estimates, was laid down in May 1958 at the Chantiers Dubigeon shipyard in Nantes, launched on 31 May 1961. After a shakedown cruise to Londonderry Port and Gothenburg in November 1962, the submarine sailed from Cherbourg to Toulon, arriving on 22 December 1962, she was commissioned into the 1st Submarine Squadron on 10 June 1964.

Minerve operated in the Mediterranean Sea. She was refitted at Missiessy Quay, Toulon, in 1967. On 27 January 1968, at 07:55 CET, Minerve was travelling just beneath the surface of the Gulf of Lion using her snorkel 25 nmi from her base in Toulon, when she advised an accompanying Bréguet Atlantic aircraft that she would be at her berth in about an hour; this proved to be the last time her crew of six officers and 46 sailors made contact. She disappeared in waters between 2,000 m deep. Commander Philipe Bouillot said that Minerve's new captain, Lieutenant de vaisseau André Fauve, had spent 7,000 hours submerged over four years on submarines of the same class and never had a problem; the only factor known that could have caused her to sink was the weather, bad at the time of her loss. The French Navy launched a search for the missing submarine, mobilizing numerous ships, including the aircraft carrier Clemenceau and the submersible SP-350 Denise under the supervision of Jacques Cousteau, but found nothing and the operation was called off on 2 February 1968.

The search for Minerve, under the name Operation Reminer, continued into 1969 and used the submersible Archimède with the U. S. survey ship USNS Mizar. In October 2018, Hervé Fauve, the son of the last commander of the Minerve, led families of the crew to ask for new research through the French media; the submarine was the only Western missing submarine which had not been found since the end of World War II. The French Government started a new search for Minerve on 4 July 2019 in deep waters about 45 km south of Toulon; the discovery of the location of the wreck was announced on 22 July 2019 by the company Ocean Infinity using the search ship Seabed Constructor. The wreck was found at a depth of 2,350 m, broken into three main pieces scattered over 300 m along the seabed. Although Minerve's sail was destroyed, identifying the wreckage was possible, as the letters "MINE" and "S" were still readable on the hull. On the same day of her discovery, Squadron Vice-Admiral Charles-Henri du Ché, responsible for the search, declared that the remains of the submarine would be left untouched and would become a maritime sanctuary.

A ceremony is to be held in the location where Minerve vanished with the relatives of the submariners in attendance. Its date has not been set.
