A majestic tomb

Rising above most of the tombs in this area of the famed Père Lachaise, three mighty owls stand watch perched between stone garlands.  The crown supports a shield that surely identifies the family.  How could I have failed to note the name and the story.  Alas, a momentary lapse, but I will return for another look.  

The skies may never be this blue again
