The Sans-Souci Palace was the royal residence of King Henri I (better known as Henri Christophe) of Haiti ([link]
). Construction of the palace started in 1810 and was completed in 1813. It is located in the town of Milot, Nord Department. Its name translated from French means "without care."
Crippled by a stroke, King Henri I committed suicide on the grounds of the palace on October 8, 1820. According to Haitian legend, he shot himself with a silver bullet. He was subsequently buried in the Citadelle Laferriere
It's an UNESCO World Heritage Site
