The Chapel of Notre-Dame-des-Armées is a Catholic religious building located in Versailles, at 10 impasse des Gendarmes. Built in 1877 by Frantz Blondel under the direction of the Eudist Fathers, it was first used as the Soldier's Home. Roland-Gosselin, bishop of Versailles, entrusted the work of the military to the Eudist priests and had a chapel built for them. The latter was, until 1967, an integral part of the French Army's home and chaplaincy, which was still led by the Eudists.
