The Palais des Tuileries was originally constructed by Queen Catherine de Medici and the garden for the palace was named the Jardin des Tuileries, due to the fact that the area was once occupied by workshops for potters and making roof tiles, with the kilns being called tuileries, which under the Ancient Regime was spelt Thuilleries.

But originally, the garden was laid out in an Italian Renaissance style reminiscent of her home in Florence, yet later changed to what is known as a Garden a la Francaise, which is a formal style of French Renaissance Garden, however, the palace was set on fire during the Paris Commune riots and shortly after was completely destroyed, but the gardens remained, just like you can see from this photo of the Fer a cheval area.
