The other options, "les appartements de la Cour du Roi" (the apartments of the King's Court) and "les appartements du Roi" (the King's apartments), are not mentioned in the sentence.

    Explanation
    During the Hundred Years' War, the kings were forced to leave the Louvre for more than a century. This war was a conflict between the Kingdoms of England and France, lasting from 1337 to 1453. The war was characterized by a series of military campaigns and battles, and it had a significant impact on both countries. The French kings had to abandon the Louvre due to the ongoing hostilities and the threat of English invasion. This explains why the correct answer is "la guerre de Cent Ans" (the Hundred Years' War).
