  • Did you know how much times the National Palace of Haiti have been destroyed and rebuilt? #Haitihistory -
-
Constructed in the 18th century as the residence of the French governor general of Saint Domingue. It's first Haitian inhabitant was the country's first president of Haiti, General Alexandre Pétion.
-
By 1850 the former governor general's residence had become known as the Imperial Palace, since it was the residence of Emperor Faustin Premier of Haiti and his wife, Empress Adélina
-
The former Imperial Palace was destroyed on 19 December 1869 during a rebel revolt that brought down the government of President Sylvain Salnave.
The building was bombarded during the conflict by the man-of-war La Terreur
-
The palace's replacement, built in 1881, was seriously damaged on 8 August 1912 by a violent explosion that killed President Cincinatus Leconte and several hundred of his soldiers almost a year to the day from Leconte's election.
-
By 1915, however, the under-construction palace was set ablaze by a mob that ousted and assassinated President Vilbrun Guillaume Sam. 
A contemporary news report stated the palace "has been partially destroyed after an early-morning attack which lasted several hours". After President Sam's death, the country was occupied by the USA, with U.S. forces taking possession of the palace and U.S. naval engineers overseeing its completion. The building was finished in 1920.
-
On January 12, 2010, the National Palace was severely damaged by a magnitude 7.0 earthquake centered about 16 kilometres (10 mi) away from Port-au-Prince. 
The collapsed copula has become a symbol of the devastated quake-hit nation. The second floor of the building collapsed almost completely, taking the attic floor with it; the palace's columned central pavilion, a section containing the main hall and primary staircase, was entirely demolished. At the time of the earthquake, President René Préval and his wife, Elisabet Delatour Préval, were at their private residence in another part of Port-au-Prince.
