| ||In 1791, during the period of the Revolution, Saint Genest and Saint Martin were sold as national assets. These churches do not seem to have suffered too much during this period. |
At the end of the Second Empire and the beginning of the New Republic, Lavardin witnessed a new invasion. It was the Prussians. In order to protect the army of the Loire and delay the advance of the Prussians, military engineers blew up the medieval bridge crossing the Loir river. Nevertheless, the enemy troops pillaged the village.
During the next century, Lavardin suffered two wars and lost many citizens to these conflicts. There is a marble plaque in the Mayors office in memory of the children of Lavardin lost on the field of honor.
